Anybody know why I feel a grinding when I turn the wheel? I can feel it in the floorboard. I'm thinking ball joints or steering box.

sounds like the power steering pump. Did you check your fluid?

Just cause it has fluid doesn't mean it's GOOD fluid... Flushing your power steering could make a difference.
