Its in cab lol. feels like its coming thru the column when I turn full revolution in a parking lot like when im backing out of a spot. not real loud just kind of a low growling noise. it doesnt effect the way it performs and I cannot feel any slack just a slight vibration combing up the steering wheel column when i turn sharp at low speeds.

I have kind of the same problem I think, but mine feels like vibration coming from under my feet and I think its the ps pump suring the hydra boost cause mine only does when im at a stop and in gear otherwise I don't notice it, just been waiting on the money to put a new pump and see if it fixes it
