        My complete guess, is your brake booster is leaking and it sounds like its comming from the steering since they are next to eachother

            it could just be transfering sound from another part connected to it.

              Have you opened the hood and had someone else turn the wheel
              Also could it be the power steering pump making the noise.
              Chasing sounds can be tricky.

                I'm thinking it's pump noise being transfered up the colume from the PS box. I hear a hiss hiss out of steering all the time but not out the colume.

                  Is the rig equiped with P/S? Sounds like a power steering pump doing its job to me.
