Steering Failure 06 f250

Earlier in the day Backing my boat around I here a pop. Didn't think much of it and left the house to watch the fireworks and everything seems fine. Once I started the truck to come home I here a whine. Not knowing what it could be I start heading home. A mile from the house I turn hard right and the whine got really bad and I knew it was the steering. Pulling in the drive way it got really tight and then the brakes started acting up. I get out and there is oil everywhere under the truck. Anyone know what might have happened before I start tearing into this thing in the morning?

I'm freakin out over here. $$$
Thanks, Tim

id start with checking the lines. finding the source of the leak. the brakes are on a hydroboost system that ties into ur powersteering system, so the brakes acting up aswell makes sense. id top the resv. off with powersteering fluid so ur not running it dry, get someone inside the truck to turn the wheel or press the brake while you look underhood or undertruck for the leak. hopefully its just a line...simple fix! good luck bro!

Well after checking everything out I found that one of the four 3/8" bolts holding the part the steering shaft bolts to had sheered off allowing the o ring to blow out. Any idea why this would have happened? Fab tech lift with toyo 37" tires.

IMHO there is a ton of pressure in the gear casing so time lubrication and vibration could be the cause...clean it up and remember. Loctite is your friend haha.
Good luck with it!
