Assuming the wheels are not falling off (jack it up and check for play) then
I'd check the power steering fluid level.

A couple of things come to mind. First Iíd check the brakes and
replace them if worn. A more likely source of the sound would be a
loose wheel bearing, or, if 4WD, Iíve heard of a seal, where the axle
shaft goes into the hub, being the source of the noise. If so, spray
some silicone spray in this area (outboard of the u-joint, next to the
hub) to see if the noise temporarily goes away. Donít get any of the
spray onto the brakes!!!
