Assuming the rocking and squeaking are unrelated then...

A squeaking sound while turning is the airbag contact ring. A very common feature/problem.

If the noises ARE related I dunno. In the UK, I think you blokes got tilt steering while the safety nazis in the states caused us to end up with fixed steering. Apparently my knees are now safer.
