Ford factory ball joints do not have grease fittings. The squeeking noise you are hearing is common on late model vics. It is the indication that your upper/lower ball joints are "dry". Considering no fittings, they need to be replaced.

Flush the power steering fluid, and add some lubgard power steering additive, from auto parts store

LUBGARD brand only, or the one from a ford or lincoln parts counter.
( regular lubgard p/s--not for Honda Only )

You can grease if you have fittings,but that is not your squeaking noise.

Driver's side wheel bearings, greased


That depends on what type of vehicle you drive. If the noise is on turns it’s more than likely a bad ball joint or toe rod end

I want to know if it is dangerous to drive with a squeeky clock spring in my van


Yes its risky. Dont drive with that noise from clock spring.Its indication of its failure.
I believe this is the "clockspring" -- the electrical cable inside the steering column that connects your steering-wheel-mounted electrical controls to the rest of the car. ("Controls" used be just the horn.) The cable wraps around the steering column so it can turn with the steering wheel. Sometimes it starts to rub and squeak.

Passenger side sounds like it is rubbing


There is nothing to grease. Someones playing with your head. There was a tech bulletin out, on the steering squeeking. I would flush the power steering fluid. I have a 2004. Let us know from time to time how it's doing

2004 Mazda tribute steering wheel squeaking


Well a steering flush would not necessarily be related to squeaking.

So, you need to locate exactly where the sound is coming from...
It really sounds like steering wheel turning and resistance causes the noise, is this constant, or only while actually turning the wheel?

Likely it would be semi constant, so that would focus you on the assist portion... Be careful around all moving parts, but you need to locate the source.

Try taking a section of heater hose, and listen through one end and move carefully around with the other end and see what you find. Likely something under the hood, with your note about window open...

Now, if the squeaking stops when the steering wheel stops turning, now steering components are suspect.... So, again, louder with window down makes me think outside and in front...I would stand in front of the car, have your handy assistant actuate the steering wheel, and you decide which side, right or left.... Suspect items that squeak only during steering wheel input include, amongst other things, the entire strut, all ball joint, including joints in the steering linkage.... Be sure to keep clear of moving parts, your handy assistant would not know they they are crushing you, while truning the wheel......

Steering wheel squeaking


they do that sometimes...Usually if you take some silicone spray and squirt it all around the area where you can hear the squeak,it will go away.
