Weird noise

whenever I cut the wheel all the way to the left/right to make a turn or park there is this weird whining/grinding noise. I think it may be the steering rod but I'm not sure. The longer I'm driving the car, the worse it gets. Could this be a serious problem?

You need to lube the steering stops. Cut the wheel all the way to the right to do the drivers side, then all the way to the left to do the passenger side.

I did as you said and also put some steering fluid in it as it was running low and the problem is gone! thank you.

My Freestyle would make noise if the power steering fluid got just a little low.
