Bizarre noise when manually cycling steering

If my jeep is on jackstands and I manually turn the wheels from full lock to full lock it makes a gurgling sound...... Any ideas where to start looking? Seems like its coming from the pump?

Is this every normal or not so much? I just want to make sure I'm not assuming the worst and its completely normal....

Thank you in advance....

Not sure what that noise is but be careful turning the steering wheel for lock to lock. When replacing my steering box I did that to find center and ended up breaking the Clockspring. Which affected all types of things. Airbag, horn and check engine light with the code to replace the TPS. Jeep ran like crap. Turns out there are a couple of sensors that get grounded to the Clockspring and when it broke it caused all types of issues. $250 for a new Clockspring...

I meant if I used my hands to turn the wheels (not steering wheel).... Just in case that has any effect on advice. Unfortunately I have no check engine lights (at all) due to an engine swap and more or less having nothing left of the jeep than the tub, dash, and frame
