pull the belt off and rotate each pulley by hand. all pulleys should rotate smoothly, no clicking or inconsistencies as they go around. if any of them clicks or 'stutters' as your rotate it, you might have found your problem.

Mine is an 05 hemi. I got under the hood last night, pulled the belt and played around with the pulleys. The power steering pulley seemed to have quite a bit of play, I could wiggle it maybe a quarter inch back and forth, plus I noticed that the pump and most of the components in that area were saturated and way more rusted than anything else underneath, although my power steering fluid is still full. I think I may have found my problem. The whine mine it's making is very loud but it doesn't whine when it's idling, only when I rev the engine.
