Sounds like you have a problem with one of your lines on your power steering or one of its components. the grinding noise could also be one of your pulleys that have gone bad too. check your steering assemby gear box.

My 2002 Grand Cherokee Laredo makes a high pitched noise that appears to come from the front end. It gets louder and more pronounced as you accellerate. It is similar to the noise you used to get with...

Small things first.Check your belt and also the pre-tensioner.Try turnind the air-con off and try it.These things can squeal their head off if it's the problem.Check these things 1st just to elimenate them from the process.It's very likely a belt problem with the symptoms you gave.Hope this helps.
(make sure all fluids are good,e.g. power/steer etc.)

Sounds like a Rocket

Check your exhaust and make sure a well meaning tech did not crush an exhaust pipe. Why not just bring it back to the guys that worked on it and tell them what happened??? There is no reason that a simple oil change should result in a new noise!!! Even if by chance it is not their fault, they certainly should be willing to show you why!!!
good luck
