Re: squeaking while turning
I had a similar experience with my truck. Try spraying some WD-40 in the lower ball joints and see if the squeak goes away and if there is a shudder when turning. If it does, they probobly are the coulprit.
Mine squeaked when I turned the wheel like you describe. The rubber boot had been broken and eventually things just wore out. I went ahead and replaced both upper and lowers. The lowers I pressed out then pressed new Moogs back in using a rental press tool. The uppers I bought the the upper control arm with ball joint in it.
