couple 0 years...not even sure this is the problem...take a wheel off the ground and see if it sounds grindy or you can move it back and forth easily...get an eyeball on your axle shafts to see if the boots are torn and leaking grease as well~

During a full stop when I turn the steering wheel left and right there I also a squeaky sound. But the power oil level is full I mean on a minimum level.

don't mess around....take it to an alignment shop.~

the fluid level only concerns the 'power steering' aspect...lubrication of the wheel bearings should be done manually.~

sadly you cannot lubricate the tie rod ends...that's what the crack about them 'takin' away our guns (grease guns that is) was about~

Hi it's me again, what's gonna be happen if the tie rod broken or there's something bad with the tie rod or cv boots. Coz I bring it to the shop for a check up but they just gave me an appointment schedule. In using the SUV everyday for my work.

Marialice, don't take chances...borrow one of your relative's vehicles until you can have this taken care of....imagine, the thing seizes up mid-turn, and you cannot put the wheel forward again..it is stuck...in my experience these always came un-done during parking...happened to me twice back in Wisconsin...Volkswagen Dasher rusted apart such that the wheels were pointing in different directions...another time was with the 61 Buick, down in Los Angeles...finding a replacement MOOG tie rod end was not a problem down in the southland...and plenty of concrete to work in that down in Orange County~....borrow a son's car, a husband's car or good buddies car for the duration...they would not you wanting to take chances with your life on this~

Thank you, as I observed the noise comes occasionally. What I mean the squeaky thing.

squeaky=grease/oil it! simple...only the front wheel bearings require a bit of dis-assembly to flush and repack...it that's the thing that goes round and round and squeaks~ They should have a safe-T-kleen tank at your alignment shop and this type of work is boilerplate for these chaps~

the drive axle boots would start goin' clack clack clack like a pony especially during a turn one way or the other...if you were brave could inspect the condition of the axle boots to see if they are leaking the special dilithium grease...but if they aren't clackity clackin...would not be too concerned with the drive axles or boots~
