It has been squealing when turning for a year or so........does that mean anything to you? Also for the last month when turning hard I could hear a hard clunk every now and then.....never was able to pinpoint its location or cause tho.

If you can get someone to saw the wheel back and forth while you listen,you might find it. I had the track bar bushing floating and it would clunk hard once each time i turned the wheel. Do this on a loose surface or you'll damage the tires.
squealing is probably low fluid in PS pump, or the pump has issues.
If it's a single clunk/ creek/ click and is not consistent with wheelspeed, it is not your CV-/ or U-joints. A single creak or click is a loose suspension component, if you mostly get it when steering it's most likely a trackbar issue. That being said, it can be pretty much any suspension- related component.
If you get a moaning/ whining when turning the steering wheel (especially if/ when you turn it to full lock), it's your power steering pump.
