Wierd loud noise when steering

Hey guys the other day I was driving my 99 sixer and out of no where this loud noise starts happening whenever I steer, it's kind of a screech, squeal type noise. Any idea what it is or how it could be fixed?? Thanks

Re: Wierd loud noise when steering

power steering pump...either it's super low on fluid or it's burning out...check your PS fluid, and add fresh fluid if needed, but you might as well go ahead and replace it if that's where the sound is coming from...easy way to tell is pop the hood...have someone start it up and then turn the wheel both ways all the way multiple times, and just listen for the noise

There was a thread just like this a couple days ago. For him, it was the ball joints. So get those checked out too.
