Steering pump is going out is my guess, rack and pinion would be more of a clunk or choppy sound?

1) check the fluid level.... easiest fix

2) most likely a power steering pump. PontiacDad is right, rack and pinion would be a more metal on metal clanging sound most likely.

Try changing the power steering fluid out completely first, then go to the pump next.
