steering locks

just put in a 6.5 inch lift and was taking it for a drive was fine for a day and then the steering started to lock up. you can still move the wheel but it Catches when you turn and you have to jerk it out and then caches the other way. is this a bad steering/pump(drowing a blank on its name)were the pitman arm attached or does it just need an aliment. i was told i could get some camber adjustment with the alignment any help would be great wont to get the truck going and stop using the car
