Default Front End Clicking and Power Steering Whine

My Power Steering Whines each morning when I am driving around/up the parking structure at work. Only in the Morning and when it is cold outside. Is there anything I can do, or is this just an annoyance until something breaks.

Also, I get a, click type sound from the front end when going over a bump or a sharp turn into my driveway, like something is loose in the front end. I have checked several suspension bolts but nothing abnormal. I have replaced all the rubber a-arm bushings with poly bushings a year ago, so its not that. Any Ideas on what to look for?

My PS "groans" when cold - I regard that as usual. If your noise is a "squeal", the belt may need replacing.
As for the click - check your brake pads - to tes, tap the brakes when you would usually get the noise and see if you still get the noise......
