I agree with "m my sedona", I actually just replaced a steering intermediate shaft on a 2005 Sedona about a half hour ago. It will definitely cause the steering to feel stiff. As far as the noise goes, how is the fluid level? The noise you are describing sounds like the pump whining due to low fluid. The steering fluid coolers frequently leak. They are located at the bottom of the radiator support.
