If you have plenty of fluid it could be the Power Steering pump itself going bad or it could be the rack and pinion assembly.

Where is the power steering reservoir on the 2005 Buick Le Sabre?

The power steering reservoir on 2000 - 2005 Buick Lesabres is located below the alternator between the firewall and engine. This applies to 2000 - 2005 Imps with the 3800 as well. At least on the Lesabre you can use your right arm to access the small space below the alternator to get to the power steering cap; you will be REQUIRED to have a long funnel to fill the reservoir if needs be. As you will observe, GM could have done a better job on locating this. Good luck!
