These vehicles are known to have power steering issues. They use up fluid and at about a 100k or so the pulley itself can "sheer" right off. I would check your power steering fluid level and go from there.

To cofirm a stuck e-brake jack up that wheel and apply e-brake then release and see if the wheel will turn freely if not the e-brake cable must be replaced, the brake shoes or pads must be checked for wear also for a temperary remedy spray liqiud wrench all along the length especially at the upper end and work the cable with your hand back and forth to free up the cable, once freed up avoid applying the e-brake until the replacement is complete.

I would start with a belt. While removing it feel how much tension the tensioner has on it, on the 3800 egnine they have a stiff tensioner(sorry I don't have any specs for how much) After you get the belt off you can look at all of the pulleys and spin them to see if the bind or look for stuff stuck in the grooves on the pulleys.
It sounds to me like the belt is streched. I would not recommend one of those gator back belts, they seem to make more noise sooner than a good v notch belt. But thats just my opinion!
