It sounds like the rack and pinion is bad. Have you checked it for leaks? Check to see if there is PS fluid leaking where the inner tire rods are covered by a rubber boot. Many times the seal goes bad, causes a stiff steering, and when you loosen the boot, it is full of PS fluid.
Let me know what you find. Also, make sure the belt is tight on the PS pump.
