Hello. There is a manufacturer technical bulletin to replace the power steering pump L-20 with a stronger style L-30 pump. The L-20 pump may not have enough power at lower engines speeds and the L-30 will. To confirm it is the pump and not the rack, you can hold the engine in park at above 1500 rpms and turn the wheel to see if noise is gone or almost gone. If you need help having this checked, a qualified pro from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to inspect the noise and assist with repair.
