steering stiff spots
So it seems everytime i fix one thing something else goes wrong, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that the steering in my 78 felt a little funny, like it has some sticky spots in it. Granted I have 38's, but it never used to feel like this, sometimes better then others, I do have an after market ps pump with high output, been on for about a year now.
Guessing maybe the box, fluid is new in it, actually running about half good fluid in in, royal purple, need to drain and completely refill with it all together. just has a funny uneven feel to it when turning, before it would turn the 38's sitting still on pavement at an idle with one finger on the wheel no problems,still turns them with ease but has a little hesitation and stiffness, but not all the time, it is hit and miss,
my guess would be the gear box possibly,anyone else ran across this and fixed a similar issue?
