You can have the alternator tested at any auto parts store. The alternator is not your problem. As for the hard steering, check your accessory belt and power steering pump. If the pump is having trouble it will make a lot of noise when you try to steer the wheel. But I would check the belt first to make sure it isn't slipping.
