I would start by tightening the Power Steering belt if it's separate. If it's one belt alone, tighten or change it if it looks warn. If new breaks squeal it is because the person who changed them did not grease the pads before putting them on.

Why would a 2005 FreeStar sometimes make a squealing sound during driving but not while idling or braking?

I have a 2004 freestar that also makes a squealing or "whistling" as I call it. I've had the ford mechanics look at it and they said the brakes are fine. I think it has something to do with the alloy wheels. The whistling starts on our van after it goes above 35 mph. As far as I can tell it's not a major problem just an annoyance.
