Power steering mods?

My 2000 7.3 steering sucks! Tires are 33/12.50/16! Is there any mods or tricks to improve the power steering! If the truck isn't moving the wheel isn't turning!!!

Re: Power steering mods?

Have the same issue with my yellow dually. Changed ps pump hydroboost and st gear box. Still the same. And thats with stock tires. However.... Ex and red F250 turn with no problem even with wider tires.

What gives?

My excursion was like that and I bought a new ps pump from autozone for $60 and it works fine now. If you want a really powerful pump get the AGR ps pump.

Could the ball joints be making it harder to turn? Maybe grease them?
