What would cause car to sqeak when going over bumps and tuning steering wheel?

Any bushing, if its worn or old enough, causes suspension squeaking at low speeds and when going over bumps. The typical cause of squeaking noises when turning the steering wheel is low power steering fluid. The power steering fluid reservoir should be checked and the fluid topped off if it is low. Fill your reservoir with manufacturer-specified fluid (or have your oil-change service station do it). With a very low fluid level, the whining sound will be accompanied by a difficulty in turning the wheel.

On my 1999 Dodge Stratus, I noticed the horn sounding when making sharp turns, then later when going over rough bumps. I was because the four rubber washers inside the steering wheel horn actuator had disintegrated - it was a simple job to pull out the steering wheel air bag and replace these washers.

Numb steering is where the steering feels disconnected from the road, which really doesn't matter unless you're a gearhead.

Steering numbness comes from dealers putting high profile comfortable eco tires and heavy power steering on there cars, which eliminates all feed back to the steering wheel and the driver.
