Sounds like power steering pump or rack n pinion might be getting bad.


Try adding Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak this not only stops leaks but also corrects hard steering used it when a friend of mine had the same problem you are having solved problem as soon as it was put in. To remove some fluid from the power steering pump use something like a turkey baster.
