when i drive the car it squeaks

Sounds like your suspension bushing are going bad. Depending on the age of the vehicle, these parts are made of rubber and wear out. They begin rubbing the metal together and can causing a squeaky sound from usually the front suspension. Might be a good idea to have a respectable alignment shop double check this solution. They can show you exactly what the problem is being caused by. It is pretty much a normal issue with older vehicles to need these rubber suspension parts replaced. They can cause alignments to start wearing tires faster and other steering components to wear out prematurely.

Is the premature tire wear on the front of a 2004 impala fixable?

You need to have the alignment checked, and while they do it, they will or should let you know if any worn suspension parts need to be replaced.
You can't do anything about the tires that are already worn, other than rotating your tires to put two good ones on the front. But I would do the alignment first.
Good luck.

97 dakota loud noise from tires while driving

I'd say get the alignment done first, and hope you have'nt ruined the tires already. Alignment problems can also wear out bearings prematurely. Start with a rotation of the tires & alignment.
