Steering Issue

Started having issues with the steering on my e99 yesterday. After taking a freeway on ramp (a hard left loop) at higher than normal speed my truck started pulling to the right. After I got home and checked under the hood I noticed the fitting circled in red was leaking a some clear fluid. When the truck completely cooled off, I took it around the block again. At first everything was alright but as the truck warmed up it started pulling to the right again and I also noticed that it would pull left when I was on the brakes....

I am kinda a newbie so I dont know much about these trucks... Any Ideas

The fitting you have circled is an air conditioning fitting. If you had the A/C on, the clear fluid you saw was probably just condensation. Start by checking your tie rod ends and ball joints for play.

2000 F250, 7.3L, 6 speed, 4x4. S&B intake, CFM+ intake manifold, 6.0 intercooler, GTP38R, EBPV delete, Bellowed up pipes, DieselSite BRV, KCM oil crossover, South Bend clutch, PHP chip, 4" downpipe to 6" single stack.

Interesting, definitely did not have the A/C on but that is a different issue... Are all the Ball Joints were replaced last year, I will check tie rod ends for play. Thanks for the response. Any other ideas
