sounds as tho you covered the bases,

 

is the rack causing you any sort of issue?

 

when you say *smooth* do you mean that as you turn the steering wheel in either direction there is a studder being fed back up thru the column?

 

When you are turning you hear this whining noise and you feel like you are doing to much force, and it´s the same if you turn right or left

I may be way off base here...but I'd probably replace the engine mounts.

The pump does whine to a certain degree, it's part of the characteristics of the pump (Saginaw Type II) used on the 1st gen cars, clean fluid does help to keep this controlled, do NOT use trans fluid.

There also is no variable assist so the steering IS heavy when at low speed, my wife has trouble turning the steering wheel under these conditions, one definitely cannot use *one finger* to turn the wheel, unlike my sons 2nd gen GTP where one CAN use just one finger to turn the steering wheel due to the variable assist.

Unless the the vanes in the pump or the pressure relief valve spring (in the pump) has failed there's not much else that could cause a low pressure situation

The GS, at least in 1995 got a very light rack. I can turn the wheel with a finger easily. It's actually too light for my liking. The Regal rack feels nothing like it.
