My Ride: 2001 bmw 330 ci
Front end squeaking when turning

I have my arizona car now in so cal where's there's been a lot of rain. Recently, I noticed I can turn my steering wheel from side to side and get a wooden boat squeaking sound at the front end. The cntrl arms, bushings and tie rods were changed about 8 months ago, so I'm not certain if the noise can be traced back to those components or not. I did have a front end alignment and new tires installed about two weeks ago but have not noticed anything strange regarding that job.
Also, my drivers side door will not stay open. A search suggests thats a door brake, so I'm going to order a part for that. Cooler wet weather seems to reveal problems that I didn't even know I had.
Any ideas?
