I have a 2000 toyota tacoma and it has 9 inches of lift on 37s. My steering has recently became hard to steer when turning, it doesnt whine or anything and no leaks. It started happening after a late night when i cut some doughnuts like an idiot. This truck is my daily driver and im taking it on a trip in about a week i need to get it fixed but im stumped at what it could be. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELPPPPPP

Did you do any mods to the steering system before you added all that meaty tire? I would guess the power steering pump is done for.
Check you fluid. Check you pump, Check the belt. Take off those bigass tires.:shrug:

the power steering pump is probably fried.

you're asking that pump to do 400% more work than it was ever intended to.
