    Can anyone tell me why my front wheels steer less with my hubs locked? I have a dana 60 welded. I suspect a weak ps pump???

    your u-joints are fighting each other. this is because you welded your front end. if you take one axle out and phase the u-joint with the other one, it will help a little, but you still welded your front and are suffering the effects of it.

    Unlock one hub till you get to the tuff stuff. Then lock in both.
