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.

Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

Get it to a shop you may have a power steering censor leak. If your handy read on.. Check the fluid level if it's low don't add more change the censor first then refill. The issue is the fluid travels through the censor into your wiring harness to your computer and other censors shorting everything out. If your fluid is low pull the censor wire off it's next to the fill tank on the pipe connected to it, if you see fluid in that wire bring this truck to Dodge. Or as I said before if your handy and you suspect this is the case, wright back and I'll give you a call and walk you through this. This is a common serious problem the can destroy your computer and possibly you engine. It can be fixed for under a hundred dollors.

do you live in high salted areas? If so, My freestyle had the same problem. It's the joint in the steering column (you can see it from underneath the vehicle) Just keep it lubed. I had to replace mine because it had worn out. Expensive. Also, it could be the bearings on top of your front struts. Dirt gets into it and binds it up. Poor engineering designs.
