Replaced steering gear box, break booster, power steering pump, and hoses. Steering gets real hard to turn at low idle. Steering works at higher rpm's.

Try bleeding system jack up wheels, turn hard to one direction hold for thirty seconds then do same in other direction repeat five times then check fluid. See if that fixes it. It may need a rack and pinion or box depending on what system you have.

One other thing belt and tensioner are recommended replacement at 60,000 miles. Check that too you need a gauge to check belt.
