== == There's a pressure switch on the Power Steering system that's supposed to tell the computer to increase the idle speed when the power steering is being used, since it increases the load on the engine. So, either that switch, or the wiring for that switch, is bad. If that doesn't do it, then you may have crud in the idle air control or the throttle body.

Why is the steering on your Chevy truck extremely hard at idle and a little easier when rpm is higher Should you replace the pump?

It depends: does your truck have power steering or manual. Keep in mind that while driving a car with speed, power steering or manual, much less movement needs to be made on the wheel to make a bigger turn adjustment. If you have power steering, and it is hard to turn at any rate, check the fluid, belt, and check for leaks. if you cant find whats wrong and you still have a problem turning the wheel, it probably the pump going out. If you have a truck with manual steering, it might be normal.
