hydro/power steering issue

Hi all, I have a 2005 F350 that's running 35's I'm having an issue with the power steering at idle backing up to trailers boat ramp etc. below 5mph the truck has like no power steering at all. I have replaced the pump with genuine ford pump new lines and also belt along with flushing the hydro fluid and it doesn't seem to be any better. All my front end parts are new.

The odd thing is this whole situation sometimes it will be like butter and turn really easy at idle other times it will be like a workout at the gym!!

So to recap, I'm running at 6 inch lift with 35's, new genuine pump belt lines, along with flushed hydro, I borrowed my buddies dodge the other day and I couldn't believe how nice the steering was and he has 38's on his! What else could it be? Or any solutions being a long bed it can make it a pain in the *** to park sometimes!
