Parrallel Parking

I have a 2010 KK Liberty.
If you need to parallel park like alongside a road or street, is it bad for your power steering pump if you turn the steering left or right against the stop while STOPPED in order to get the maximum turning radius. I know it's better to be moving when you turn the wheels, but in a parallel parking suitations sometimes you need to get the maximum turn by turning while the car is stopped. Any thoughts on this? I also know there will be a little more tire wear by turning while stopped, BUT will it hurt the power steering pump?

You mean turning the wheel while stopped? Generally it's best to be moving(even if you're barely moving) while turning. It's definitely harder on the pump and rack, but I wouldn't call it "bad". If you're running bigger tires, then I'd say it could be bad though.

Bad thing is to take it all the way against the stops and hold it there. I hate to hear someone trying to park and holding them right there, cringe everytime I hear it
