Sounds like worn out front wheel drive CV (constant velocity) joints. A CV joint is a flexible coupling attached to a drive axle. A front wheel drive car will have 4 of these. (2 per side)If they are making noise they probably need to be replaced. If it is a clunking/knocking sound it could be a bad CV joint. If it is a whining sound the Power Steering fluid may need to be flushed, or possibly the power steering pump may even need to be replaced. If it is a knocking soud while turing, your problem is a rusted out strut mounting pieces, your going to need to get it fixed before it brakes and comes through the top of your wheel well.

When a car makes a squealing noise during turns it means that your roters are worn out and you need new ones, bad breaks can cause wear on roters due to more friction heat being pruduced because of the lack of break pad material so you probably need to get new breaks as well.
