Default my steering is stiff,why?

My 07outlander steering is stiff,I have not rode another to compair to but my brothers gade x is allmost like power steering comparied to mine.It has stock tires tire pressure good.I bought it new so its never been flipped or crashed.I dont see anything bent,If I jack the front end off the ground it steers easy.The steering stem bushing squeeks bad but I shot some oil on it squeek gone but no help......

i heard the bearing at the bottom of the steering stem gets worn out and needs to be replaced. mine is hard to steer compared to my buddy's renegade and i'm planning to replace the bearing, just haven't done it yet.

Mine was hard to steer as well.. I ended up using WD-40 on the upper bushing block and working the steering back and forth for what seems like forever, but it did eventually loosen up. Felt like a new machine.

Im thinking its the upper bushing block, mine is stiff too, and squeaky. The bearing cant be shot on mine it only has 800 miles on it
