Idk what the hell is wrong with my car. Its acting kinda funny. Mainly on take off and when turning right i get this shudder coming from what seems like the front right wheel well. Does it on left turns too but not nearly as bad. And has recently started making noise that sounds power steering related.

It may be the pump going bad. Does it shudder the steering wheel as well and sometimes get stiff?

Well try and take off front wheels and check to see if a lug nut or 2 were cross threaded causing wheel to be loose. Then check brake rotors for warping. Look at brake pads to look for uneven wear that would be a result from sticky or bad caliper. With tire off slowly roll on ground and check for broken tire belt. I work at a tire shop and lots of tires get bubbles or swollen spots from impact on rocks or bad potholes. Also it could just be a bad tire.

Find a straight and level road with little or no traffic to safely run a few driving tests such as:

When driving straight ahead, can you let go of the wheel without the car drifting off-course? Many refer to this a “pull,” as in “It pulls to the right or left.”
When you make a turn, will the steering wheel return by itself to normal position or must you manually straighten the direction? This is sometimes called “sticky steering.”
Is there a looseness in the “feel” of the steering wheel? Does it seem that you must turn the wheel too far before the car responds?
When driving straight ahead, does it take conscious effort to keep your car driving straight?
Does the wheel feel unusually stiff? If power steering fluid is leaking, you may be manually turning the wheel without the power assist.
Are you hearing new noises in your car as you drive? Tiny squeals could be a simple slipping belt, but squeals, knocks and hisses should be investigated and scheduled for repair.
Do your tires show signs of uneven wear?

Double check that all the bolts are tight. Some rusty bolts will get tight but will not be snug all the way causing movement
