61380 mi Rattle at front of car going over bumps. Dealer replaced front stabilizer links on both sides. Clock spring replaced and was not the source of the problem. Squeaking continued. Re-diagnosed as something to do with steering column/power steering as only present when turning steering wheel when car is running. Parts ordered. 
62620 mi Replaced steering column assembly, but squeaking persists. Made appt. to replace other steering components (I'm unsure what at the moment). Parts ordered. Dealer replaced joints and coupling assembly in steering (alignment also performed due to repairs done), but short time after leaving the shop problem was still present. I decided to try and live with the problem and see what comes of it. 
63860 mi Dealer replaced power steering rack and performed alignment after replacement. Squeaking in steering wheel went away--car interior smells like WD-40. Wondering if rack replaced, but problem persisted and just lubed up to eliminate squeak.
