As for the squeaking steering column, I'll let someone else with the know how help you with that.
I agree with jwko. A garage may be best concerning the systems that are giving you trouble. They can put it on a rack and thoroughly check the brakes and steering.
FYI- The tie rod ends on most all late model FLM products were/are junk. They have no grease fitting to grease them. Eventually they would start to seize and will make steering difficult. They can make VERY LOUD squeaking noises. If it is loud enough it can sound like it is coming from inside the car.
