Strange sound/feel in steering

Today when I was driving home, I took a corner rather tightly but at a low speed. From that point on I had a strange sound anytime I turned the wheel left or right. The sound was coming from the front end. It was not a squealing sound and not a grinding sound, more of a groan. My first thought was the power steering fluid was low but it looks fine.

As for the feel in the wheel, it is just not quite as smooth as before. Still very drivable and the jeep responds as usual.

We are going through seasonal changes here finally, so I can rule out the typical winter noises from the rubbing and whatnot that I usually have.

Any ideas? Things I should be looking at?

Thanks

Had a thought while talking with my pops, could this be caused by the power steering pump motor dying a slow death?
