Mine used to do that then one day I went to make a u-turn and heard a loud bang - the entire box shattered into three or four pieces and I lost all steering. After towing it home and pulling the box I could see that it had a very large crack that had existed for a long time (full of grease and dirt). Not to freak you out because you may have a completely unrelated issue but I'd, at the very least, remove the shroud and take a good look at what's going on.

have a look at the steering box mounting area on the chassis and especially the area where the steering idler is mounted to - sometimes this metal gets weak and starts to move with the steering action, and eventually cracks - you need a friend to turn the wheel and you have a good look down there!
Just a thought..........
