Stef, first welcome to the forum. I suspect you are going to find out the tie rod/ball joints are not serviceable. See if you can isolate the squeaky joint and then you'll get to change it out. Good luck...

You might also check the power steering fluid level. If the fluid is low it will cause toe power steering pump to make noise which you can also feel in the steering wheel
