hard to turn

Within the matter of a week, steering went from smooth (normal) to fighting the steering wheel just to make a turn. Steering fluid is normal levels. No signs of leaks anywhere.

Update from Jul 23, 2019: Problem was a rusted lower steering shaft. I’d post a picture but I can’t. Part was inexpensive from 1aauto. $59.95. https://cdn.1aauto.com/partimage/STC/1ASTC00197/a34d0c970bf44399850d8ae6643844de_490.jpg
