Might be the steering rack seizing up...or it could be a track-rod end I guess...

You need to get someone to wiggle the steering while looking for it. Ideally, disconnect the track-rod ball joints to eliminate anything suspension-related.

It's probably the inner track rod balljoint, these are replaceble on their own so don't replace the whole rack for just these.
