steering wheel growls at me?

when i steer my truck around, the steering wheel makes a funny growling noise regardless which way i turn the wheel. its done it forever, but im just finally getting around to trying to fix it. Any one know what causes this?

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way...

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
