Default Steering sqeaks....but only after the rain??

I'm hearing some squeaking...in the left front end somewhere. Only when I hit a bump and turn the wheel to the left...and it seems to be when it'* damp out. Maybe that part'* in my imagination....but none the less the squeaking is there.
Possible that the front struts are going? My front tires are abnormally losing air too, that'* why I mention the struts.
Thanks for any help.

Your tires are going to lose air quicker this time of season. Does the car feel any different then before? Or is it just the sound?

The steering is a little loose, I guess is a good way to put it. The car sways alot, doesn't seem as stiff.
As far as I know, the entire suspension is stock - with 156,000 miles.

When was the last time you had a balance and rotate? If its been a while, might want to try that, and see if they can see anything wrong with your struts while the tires are off.
