Steering Locks Up, Please Help!

I have a 2006 F250 6.0L a few months back the problem started. When I turn the steering wheel to the left and try to bring it back to the right it "sometimes" locks up and I have to use both hands to bring it back to the right, as soon as the steering wheel breaks center and goes to the right it unlocks. It doesn't do it all the time and I have just replaced the front outside u-joints and it still does it. Any ideas?

You don't want to know, it's possible you have a bad steering box.

Nope, that warranty is for the powertrain only (engine)

I'm trouble shooting the same problem with my truck. Just found out the universal joint on the passenger side is seized. lift you front end, lock the hubs in, and rotate the tire and turn it. Check that the u-joint moves in all directions
