Make sure your pitman arm is super tight on the shaft coming out of the steering box. Mine was loose once, and the pitman arm would wobble up and down some before the wheels would actually turn.

Cool! I will check that tomorrow.
For some reason that almost seems plausible. It seems to turn right just fine but left its having a hard time with. the wheel turns but the wheels do not.
at slow parking lot speeds it is fine.
