Low speed sharp turn steering problem When you turn the wheel all the way right or left at a given point the steering becomes very jerky and feels like it is going to lock up a front wheel any ideas?

Let me guess. You have power steering, right? When you turn the wheel all the way to the lock, the power steering pump is still trying to turn it further, which is why the steering feels jerky. You can blow up the pump, or a hose, by holding the wheel against the lock. You won't turn any wider if you let the wheel come back one quarter turn, but you will take the pressure off of the pump.
