Loose alignment is the most likely culprit.

It could also be the servo if your car has got one.

There is a small spring loaded metal contact which slides on a disk on the back of the steering wheel. Normally there is di-electric grease on the disk and over time it gets rubbed off and will start to squeak. Removing the steering wheel and adding some di-electric grease to the area should eliminate the sound.

What could the squeaking coming from under the front end of your 95 Eddie baurer be also you had the bushings replaced two years ago?

The squeak possibly could be tierods. My '98 Mercury had a bit of a squeak coming from under the front and I figured it to be just old car sounds coming on. The steering started getting a bit tight and shaky, from there I was told the steering trouble was undiagnosable, but the tirods needed replacement and the squeaking was what alerted them to that. I went to a different mechanic to have that fixed and they told me the steering trouble was definitely related to the tierod. After they replaced that the squeak and steering trouble was gone.

The squeak is caused by lack of lubrication to the steering bushing. Pull the steering wheel off. There is a rubber bushing that surrounds the steering shaft. Remove the bushing with a thin screwdriver. Once removed clean the bushing and shaft. Then add anti seize lube to the shaft and and bushing. Then use a 7/8 " deep socket to drive the bushing back into the steering housing. Clean and add anti seize lube to the bottom of the steering wheel . Then install the steering wheel.
