Sounds like the pump might need replacing.

i think i found the problem, for you people with hard steering, check the universal joint on the steering wheel shaft., min is rusty, i used penetrating oil and 10/30 oil and it corrected my steering problem,might have to change the joint down the road a bit, but saved my money right now. hope this might help some people.

Good info Robert. That's always something to look at, but you usually feel or hear them first.
