Have a look at the universal joint at the bottom of the steering column they tend to dry out and become stiff to turn. Either look over the back of the engine or get it on ramps and spray it with lube and see if it makes any difference.

What Addo said, the top mount bearings dry out and go stiff, they are only cheap to buy new, strip down the new ones and liberally apply copperslip or some equivalent anti seize Wink

I had the same problems and it was wheel alignment. The tyres wear on the outside and develop a feathered edge.

There's a lot of advice here:  http://www.berlingoforum.co.uk/thread-8125.html
