I really need help. Bad Steering Problem. Please help.
I have a 2003 F250 4X4. At first the steering became hard, it felt like I didn't have power steering at all. So my first move was to replace the power steering pump. I did that and it helped a little, but still felt hard. Then I drove the truck a little while after that and the steering was very hard, but it also started to have delayed response. For example if I was approaching a sweeping right hand corner and went through the corner after I got through it and straightened everything out, there would be a sudden jerk to the right, when I would correct to the left it would be hard then there would be a sudden jerk to the left about 2 seconds after I would correct. This would continue for a little while than stop. So I replaced the steering box, and the lines. Now, when I'm going straight there will be a sudden jerk to the right then a jerk to the left then to the right and it won't stop doing it. I have no idea what it is. The ball joints were replaces in 2009 and I grease them every 3K miles. I don't have mudders on it. Just 265/75/16 General grabbers that I rotate every 3K-4K. By process of elimination I was wondering if it might be the Hydro Boost since it's the only thing I haven't replaced. Please Help. As always it's appreciated.
