You should clear as much of the snow out of the suspension as possible. But you may have a hydrauic brake booster with that is run by the powersteering pump. Check to make sure it is full and then if that's ok, take it to a prowhere he can check to see if thepressure is up to snuff to run the brake booster and power steering. Also check to see if the return hose is kinked, it will be the one that doesn't have the crimped ends and if memory serves me right it will go from the steering box to the back of the resovoir.
