To test the CV joints, go to an open area.
With steering turned to full lock, accelerate moderately and if crocking noises appears, the CV joint is bad. Reverse steering turning position and retest. Noises on left turn indicates a fault with the right joint and vice versa.
As to the squeaking noises, does the noise appear when making turns with vehicle stationary?
It is consistent with road speed?
Squeak noises during turns are usually caused by ball joints. Check the upper and lower control ram ball joints for torn rubber boots and excessive side play.
