2009 Jeep GC SRT Steering issue

I have a 2009 SRT with 61k on the odometer, in the last week or so, whenever I try to turn to the right, I feel like the steering wheel is fighting me and locking up, its only for a split second then it gives in and turns, my power steering fluid levels are fine but unsure as to what the problem could be. Anyone else have/had this problem before, i'd just like to have some basic knowledge before i take it into the dealership tomorrow!

Re: 2009 Jeep GC SRT Steering issue

^x2, or possibly some leaking inside the rack. Its only to the right? Specific to any input or speed, or all the time, all conditions?

could also be various suspension issues, check tire pressure, alignment, any ball joints etc.
