I also have a 2004 Freestar and I'm having the same issue… loud high-pitched squeal coming from the front end. Not brakes as they've been taken apart 2-3 times in an attempt to fix it. Appears at speeds over 15-20 km/hr and usually takes awhile to appear, 25-30 km to 'warm up' but after that it is constant and loud. Seems to disappear on either a hill or a curve, when there is some load on it.
IS this a steering unit issue, a drive train problem or what?
My mechanic is buffaloed and can't seem to find anything that causes it.
