Check the fluid. If it is full, the pump is worn and eventually will fail but it may last a good while longer. Check the fluid level first though.

answer sounds like wheel bearings are wearing out, or the steering column bearings inside the steering colum

If the vehicle is front wheel drive then you may also need to check the right and left side CV joints on the drive shafts..many times the rubber boots covering these joints degrade and crack allowing dirt/moisture to enter the joint and allow the grease to exit,this will cause a grinding noise when turning..If left unchecked the joints will fail and the car becomes undrivable...

There are 2 CV joints on each drive shaft one right behind wheel housing(hub) and one next to the transmission...

CV= (constant velocity)

I don't have the answer,,,my Stratus 2001 just started doing the same thing, only it's more like a popping/cracking sound when steering wheel turned to the far right or left. Took it to repair shop after work today; mechanic drove it and reported that it sounds to him like a spring or bolt is either coming loose inside the column or already has. I have an appt to bring it in to disassemble the steering column this weekend to find the solution to the problem.
