Possibly the left front CV shaft is failing and binding and causing the power steering pump to whine trying to turn left, need to have a repair shop check this

tie rod..... it was like that for my 99 grand am for a while untill making a u turn and hearing a huge pop and getting out to see my front wheels facing different directions... do your self a favor and replace the tie rod now or it might cause an accident later on.
