It is most likely that there is still some air in the system. It is quite possible to have some debris from the worn pump in the system, the best way to eliminate the metal shavings from a worn pump is to install an inline filter commonly available aftermarket.

When installing the new pump the old fluid might not have been flushed out of the system.The debris in the remaining fluid will cause the new pump to eventually fail. Also the wrong fluid might have been installed after the pump was changed.

Is it early morning or evening when you start up?...Dew? Moisture will make it squeek. Have you had the belts checked? Worn belts can also be the cause of the squeeking. Good luck!

What causes a noise in the power steering pump in a 1992 Grand Marquis and the noise is still there after new one was installed?

If all the air isn't purged from the system, and if the fluid level is low, the pump will continue to make noise. Also, it may be that one of the idler bearings or accessory bearings are causing the noise, and not the steering pump.

What is wrong with a 1994 LT1 police package Caprice 5.7 installed new power steering pump and power steering box and the lines are not clogged and have no air in them but still has steering problems?

"Problems" isn't an adequate description of what's going on. It could be anything from low tire pressure to alignment or even the steering column coupling. To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any mind readers here.

You heard a grinding noise when you would turn and you filled up with power steering fluid but you still hear this noise - What could this be?

I would guess that it is the wheel bearing. is it a grumbling sound or an all out grinding? If it is or was a grumbling sound and has turned into a grinding it is probably the wheel bearing.
