Did you bleed the system well?? Are you using atf+4 or PS fluid??
Front wheels off ground, engine running, turn steering wheel to lock both directions a few times. Check PS fluid level. Apply brakes a few times also. If doesn't clear the hydro boost may be wounded.

bleed the system twice with ps fluid, and once with the atf fluid since its getting cold here I thought it would help the problem but still no difference. with the front wheels off the ground it turns easy lock to lock, but as soon as you put it on the ground it wont turn moving or not.

do you think it could be the gear box? the day before it got this bad the wheels started to stick when I would turn side to side but about 5 minutes after that I was able to turn the wheels lock to lock with no problem like nothing ever happened. the truck has a 6" suspension lift and 2" body lift with 38" tires and before the psp started leaking I was able to turn the wheels from lock to lock sitting still effortlessly. is there a way to test the hydro boost?
