No power steering but brakes work fine.
First time posting.
After searching around for a few days it seems the problem with my truck may not be the power steering pump as I had initially suspected. My truck has always felt like there is no power steering, sometimes in mid-turn, the wheel feels like it locks up (like turning left in intersections), and on the highway it is ok but I can still tell there is no power steering.
But my brakes work fine, if it was my power steering pump I would not have brakes, is that correct?
So could it be the gearbox? Or the joints on the steering shaft?
I have a 6.4 with 191k miles on it (26k on the engine block). I had read these trucks are hard to steer so when I got the truck I thought it was normal, then I got a 6.4 at work as my work truck, and it turns great, wheels turn back and forth while stopped. My truck is all stock (except for EGR delete and DPF delete), no lift, no big tires.
What can I check to get down to the bottom of this? Will I just have to start replacing things until it is fixed? What would you guys recommend?
