check your front rubber bushes, your power steering rack under the car for starters

drain power steering fluid and replace, its self bleeding

while under car their should be a plastic tube to equalise air pressure in the rack, this is often knocked off by bush bashing and if missing will cause problems eventually

ok I will check and drain fluid etc, but come to think of I bought it of my friend who is 83 and he always like spinning the wheels so it wouldnt surprise me if he did hand brakeys
