the low speed clunking or binding sound is more than likely a cv joint. the squeaking noise is just a need of some lubericants on the supension areas all moving parts

I'm not sure that is correct (the answer above). If you read my description about my 09 TL, you will see that I had the same problem. You need to look up the TSB (can't remember the number). They have to replace a piece or two in the steering column. But most won't do that unless you give them the proof they need (that you know what you are talking about). This was the ONLY way I got the problem fixed and without paying for it.
