Hard steering/memory steer
My steering suddenly started sucking yesterday...and it also seems to bind on me randomly when I turn left...I am thinking this could be either a
1) camber issue/alignment issue
2) steering gearbox problem
3) pump problem
Flushed my PS fluid when got my truck, mobil 1 with a magnefine inline filter is in there at the moment. Steering seems to have plenty of power until a certain spot turning left...then it acts like it's hitting the stop early and it binds...my brakes also seem weaker than usual also...I am slowly adjust my steering gear looser to see if that helps...it does somewhat...could my gearbox be trashed and putting extra pressure on the pump causing the brakes to be weaker? Or is the pump on its way out... Hard to keep the truck in a straight line and the wheel definitely dosent like returning to center... All other components ( brakes, bearings, u-joints, tie rods, are tight and look great...
Any one else deal with this? 08 job 1...
