Steers hard to left.
Replaced pump.
Any ideas on why it steers hard left?
If turning slow seems OK but when turn fast it gets hard.

Thanks in advance

like the steering wheel is hard to turn?
try checking the u-joints, brakes, ball joints, and TREs and just for anything to bind. might want to jack up the front end and do it in the air you can see if anything is loose that way

Yes it is hard to steer left. I canot find any binding. I am wondering if it could be steering box or maybe a bad line. I have already reaplaced the pump.:dunno:

If you turn the steering wheel slowly it is fine but if you jerk the steering to the left it almost stops and rips the wheel from youre hand and than is smooth.:dunno:

Steering Gear Box maybe binding up or you have a bad valve in it. Which could cause your problem.

Check your steering shaft. Theres a little u-joint right where your steering column comes out of your firewall. My u-joint was breaking when i had to replace mine.

BTW if thats it start hitting the junkyards cuz you dont want to know how much jeep wants for it.
