Steering noise

So now when I turn to the left (mostly but also sometimes when i turn right as well) it kinda sounds like a whine but it's not the power steering pump. The steering wheel is still easy to turn, it just makes a noise.
Any help is appreciated thanks

Have you checked the PS fluid level?

Yes I have checked it. It is fine. It's not really a whine just more of a weird sound. Sounds really similar to the horn BUT IT ISN'T THE HORN!

I have the same issue but it's only when I make hard left turns, never the right. I checked the PS level, all good. Before this it would make a crunching noise if i made a hard turn to either side, I figure it's my axel U joints. IDK tho, any info would be GREAT!

But it doesn't do it just when I turn sharp it does it at all when I turn left. Just turning a normal corner it will whine like no other. Any help? This think is driving me crazy.

Maybe the PS pump going bad? From what you've described it has to be associated with your power steering I would think. Maybe you could get someone to crank it up and turn the wheel back and forth while you get under the hood and issolate exactly where the whining is coming from.
