Steering tight after cab removal.

Just got my truck back from the shop and the cab was removed for the HPFP replacement. My steering feels tight after I got it back, and when I mean tight I don't mean accurate with no slop, I mean it takes more muscle to turn the wheel and after a sharp turn the wheel doesn't return as fast as I remember. Before I call the dealer is there anything I should check?

I would have hoped that they checked it before it left the dealer, but one cannot assume anything these days.

make sure the steering shaft isn't binding on anything on both sides of the firewall, more so under the hood

Update. I had to change out my passenger side tie-rod end and just did both while I had it apart. ($305.00) ouch. Well that cured my hard to steer problem. Who'd of thunk it.
