Let me guess. You have Power Steering, right? When you turn the wheel all the way to the lock, the power steering pump is still trying to turn it further, which is why the steering feels jerky. You can blow up the pump, or a hose, by holding the wheel against the lock. You won't turn any wider if you let the wheel come back one quarter turn, but you will take the pressure off of the pump.

Why would the passenger front wheel of a 2004 Neon squeak intermittently moreso while turning even though steering feels tight and responsive?

It's probably nothing to do with your steering. Sounds like you could have a bearing problem. Squeaking is usually an indication of vibration, so my educated guess on this would be something is wrong with your passenger side wheel bearing. [added by cilynx] It turned out to be the simple answer: brake pads.

The alignment is miss-set or the front suspension and steering is damaged, OR the steering coloum is broken or damaged
