WD-40 is a poor lubricant at best, it's technically a solvent and water displacer that will totally evaporate within a few days leaving nothing behind. In other words, the steering shaft would start squeaking too soon again where it passes through that rubber grommet if he sprayed WD-40 in there.
Instead of WD-40, spray something into that area that will last, like a white lithium-based lubricant. I have an aerosol can of lithium-based lube and that stuff is very good and long-lasting in that type application.
