Power steering on 5 Star locked up. Should I start with tie rod removal? Should it be free without any pressure on system?

I agree with Chris, check the spindles. It is possible that the thrust bearing on the bottom is worn out and binding the spindle. Bought an M5 that was that way.

Has it sat for a while? I would guess stuck spindle. If you jack the front end up so there is not weight on the wheels, you can usually wiggle things to find what is tight. Try turning the wheel and see if the tie rods wiggle, and try moving each wheel by hand.
