Is it lacking power steering all of the time or just hard in spots, the intermediate steering shaft on this truck has small u-joints that I have seen rust/seize up causing a bind in the steering, a mechanic can check this out for you, and I would have em check all front end parts, and have the power steering system checked for leaks in case thats the issue.

Make sure your belt is good and not slipping. Have someone turn wheel while while you watch pump to see if it stops turning intermittently.
