I own a 84 533i, and I have been there.
It started out when I turned right, and gradually
began to do it all the time. It sounded aweful. I bought a new power steering hose ($160)
and a new pump ($200). Neither of these were my problem. Come to find out it was just that my power steering filter was rotten. I reached down to the bottom of the power steering resovuor and pulled out the old nasty filter. I haven't had the problem since. However, I do need to order a new filter soon. In the meantime I have to change my fluid every few months. It won't hurt to run it without the filter though.
