    Is my Power Steering going out?

    Hey whats up guys I am new to the Subaru World! got my 05 WRX! but besides the point, my question is if my power steering is going out or bad? seems to be a little stiffer then it usually is, when I turn (for example) into a parking space or 90 degree turn I feel the tension and then gets easy again, and occasionally I would hear a "POP" sound when turning, correct me if I am wrong but I dont think it would be my axels or anything, has this happened to anyone or know what is going on? I would highly appreciate the Info and help!

    Check the belt/tension and fluids first. Could be either of those and they're much cheaper to replace. My 08 had a similar problem which turned out to be the belt being the culprit.

    My 04 had this issue but turned out to be power steering bracket and and pump are leaking. Definitely check the fluids and belt first. MUCH cheaper...
