I recently started to experience a groan when I make a right turn, now it seems to be spreading to the left turn as well.

Any suggestions?

Check your power steering fluid level, most likely it's low.

If it isn't the fluid, it could be a ball joint. We see the boots split and the ball and socket fill with rust and groan.

Good luck

Sometimes the power steering hose could be twisted and thus the fluid is not flowing as well as it should. Might be worth a visual inspection too.

I had my ball joints changed for the same symptoms.
