Hello, so can you tell me a little more info? have you tried turning the wheels with the vehicle in the air? most times if steering is hard to turn check the shaft from the column to the rack and pinion, the u joints inside the shaft bind up and will cause a issue like yours, let me know what you determine, i will help as much as i can. Lou.
