Steering Issue

I have noticed on my truck when turning right the steering doesn't want to return to center, but when i turn left it will almost get to center before it stops. What could be wrong, my powersteering works fine, nothing seems broke underneath that i can see? Anybody got any ideas what it could be. I can drive the truck fine, just got to fight it when i turn right.

Some people call that memory steer check all your sttering joints and ball joints to see if there is any binding if not I would look into your steering box

If you decide to replace your steering gearbox check put Redhead Steering .com.
Also within the steering column is what is called a clockspring. Sometimes they go bad.

I got it figured out, my steering stabilizer was bent. It was sticking when i turned right, replace that and it's worked great.
