SOURCE: Stiff steering
Check fluid and make sure it filled enough,(make sure that its actually power steering fluid in there and not something else added by mistake for ex. antifreeze etc) make sure there are no leaks. Check power steering belt and and make sure its tight NOT loose or slipping. From personal experience with these vehicle you MOST likely cause of this problem if all the items above are GOOD is a bad power steering pump.

Check power steering fluid first. I can always tell when a ford is coming up the street because I hear the power steering pump first. Good luck , hope it's nothing serious

I have seen struts get tight with age. In which case it would be time to change the shocks in the struts.
But the power steering could also be going as well. They it with both front tires jacked off the ground, and the engine off. It should be easy to turn, lock to lock.

Could be an air lock in the system.Leave the engine running with the fluid cap off and turn the steering from lock to lock several times .
