SOURCE: when i turn the steering
It could be the pump, or you could also be low on power steering fluid. First off, check the level of the fluid and make sure it's adequate. Next, you can "burp" the power steering system easily, which will get rid of any air bubbles that could be in there. Easiest way is to jack the front end off the ground (both wheels), start the engine, take off the power steering fluid reservoir cap, and turn the wheel side to side as far as it'll go, several times. This circulates the fluid through the system and pushes any bubbles in there up to the reservoir, where they'll float up to the top and "burp" into the air.
If neither of those things works, you may have problems with the steering rack and pinion, or possibly with your suspension (check the tie rods, inner and outer, as well as the bushings in the various suspension pieces).

Check the idler arm and pittman arm, then the tie rod ends for ANY play. The pittman arm is the one on the steering gearbox that connects to the tie rod, and the idler arm is the one that connects from the tie rod to the frame. Replacing the parts is a pretty inexpensive and straightforward job, but you will need to have the wheels re-aligned afterwards.

The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.
