Hi..there..

First of all the obvious needs to be checked with regard to - tyre pressure! both fronts are low you will get heavy steering..so worth checking them when the tyres are cold..not after a run.. second is the fluid in the power steering..if its never been changed since 2006 that you know off.then again thats could be something to consider getting renewed...third is issue with suspension either siezed or stiff balljoint or top mounting causing extra effort on the steering..worth getting that checked too...
