Hello, a couple things come to mind, One would be the 2 front caliper hoses, the rubber ones OR a problem in the front end like worn tie rod ends, Due to age etc? I am leaning to a bad brake hose, They can collapse internally, acting like a one way check valve persay, hard to explain,You have th symptoms for bad brake hose or hoses, Again, front end must be tight, so with front end off the ground, steering locked, need to grb tires and wiggel side to side to be sure no play, basically even a worn front end can cause this but I still lean to brake hoses, now,, this is providing you have bled no air, no leaks etc

no being there, going off symptoms? you have bad hose or hoses, No way for me to be 100% but as long as things done as mentioned, all ruled out? then brake hoses and they can be a common fail item
