Answerif it's a whining noise you may need to check your Power Steering fluid level.

I had this same problem. And if I am thinking of the same straining noise your talking about. Mine sounded like a noise like wet rubber was rubbing hard together? is that the same sound? if it is the same sound, I had to put new front struts in my 1999 Dodge Avenger and it didnt make the sound anymore.
