Hard to steer at idle *SOLUTION*
I saw quite a few threads stating that some folks can turn their steering with a finger and others can't at idle, sitting still. I was one that could not. When the original owner took the truck in for this issue Ford stated it was normal on SD trucks and diesels.
I just put on a new Red-head steering box and new power steering pump and with my 33's I can turn it from lock to lock with one finger at idle and without rolling. Before I had to either roll a little or neutral/idle up to make it turn in tight spaces. It still works even with the brake pushed in.
I'm completely convinced it was the pump and not the box, but for those that have issues I'd recommend getting a $50 pump fom Advance Auto and throw it in.
