If it sounds high in the column more than likely it's the clockspring.
They have a habbit of getting noisy.
As long as nothing else has happened along the way and the steering feels tight etc.
I've changed lots..
Without hearing this noise there are going to be lots of things to check. If you FEEL it's now a p/s noise. Pump (Swishing type) noises can vary in degree by age and temp. If the fluid is full check for air bubbles in the resovoir. Pumps can bubble fluid if the clearances go south. Chrysler has come out with a few different p/s fluids to combat this Hiss, swish type noise in their cars. Not positive in trucks. Might want to look into a replacement of the fluid.. The new fluid does help in the cars that are noisy.
Also check if for some reason a hose is rubbing on something and transmitting this noise..
Just a few things to think about....
thanks for the tips . I change the pump fluid yearly and use synthetic fluid . I believe the added weight of the plow taxes the power steering system . The pump maybe giving up ?? and always at the worst time
