You have not described any of the load balancing part of the
configuration. All the Squid settings do is set the Squid outgoing IP.
The operating system still has to take that and do things based on it.

You will benefit from an upgrade to squid-3.3 or later where the
tcp_outgoing_address is compatible with HTTP persistent connections.

ALso, if "wan1" and "wan2" are in yoru config as that exactly they need
to be DNS resolvable host names with exactly 1 IP address.
