please help with sticky steering on corvette

I was just given an '87 corvette coupe that has been parked for over a year and has become rather "stale". It has a few problems that need to be addressed before I can begin driving it. The biggest one is a problem with the steering. When I drive it the steering seems to be very stiff as I begin to turn the wheel and then jumps like its breaking free from a bind or power steering fluid begins to flow. It would best be described as jerky and unpredictable. I have several ideas as to what this might be but wanted to check with people who really know whats going on before I begin to tear into it. The car has 150K miles on it but has been maintained fairly well. emphasis on fairly
