    Just put on new steering box a few weeks ago. Its harder than normal for the first second or so when you start turning.
    Or if you are sitting still and turn the wheel real quick, its hard for a second then goes to normal.

    make sense?

    Any advice?

    box is new....well a reman, but yeah, right out of the box.
    Pump is newer also.

    its fine if you turn SLOW, but if you crank it back and forth there is definate hesitation.

    I think I bled it all the way, it was jacked up and I turned the wheel back and forth several times.

    Any idea on how to make sure its bled completly?
