    I forgot to ask..are you talking about just a whining noise? or do you feel /hear a grind when you turn the steering wheel?

    The power steering pumps on fox body Mustangs are notorious for making noise. With the engine running, turn the steering wheel all the way against the stop. If you hear the noise then, leave the steering wheel against the stop and check the power steering fluid level. It may be low, if not, it is the design of the pump.
