Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.
I would inspect the Stering Rack Joint, I would also check the power steering rack bushings. If you feel it through the column, then it's something with in the steering that you are feeling. Especially since it's when turning.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.
If not, and you're satisfied with my help, please Rate me. I hope I have provided you with Excellent Service.
Thanks Jay!

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
