does it do this when sitting still and turning the wheel? esp on full lock.

if so, check powersteering fluid levels.

filling it up could fix it, but if it keeps up, it could be the pump.

Wheel bearing would be my guess. An easy change and pretty cheap if thats what it ends up being.

Sounds like wheel bearings to me. If you do a slalom, like the skiers do down hill, and the noise gets worse as you load up the wheels, then its wheel bearings.

only takes 3 mins to check.

wheel off
hub dust cover off

you should be able to check on the grease in the bearing, by nocking the little center cap off.
