Has anyone done any "adjusting" on the box itself?

It's been over a month since your last post. Did you find the problem? I'm betting it was the gearbox. I read somewhere that if it's overtightened it will cause too-tight steering and poor wheel return.

Default Hard steering

The use of the internet is convienient when trying to solve problems. As I started this search I did not see many issues with similar symptoms as I am experienceing. This blog thread is exactly what I have going on with my 99 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 with Cummins. My truck was in at the local Dodge delaer here in Dallas for a VP-44 injector pump change out (a whole differnt story in itself, 3 installed in 4 months until it was working properly). Anyway, on got the truck back from the dealer and noticed stiff steeering issues. I even had other people drive my truck and they say the same thing. The Dodge dealer first told me that is was due to cold weather. I've had this truck in Northern British Columbia at -20 and never experienced stiff steering problems like this, so I'm not buying it. Then then told me to change the Power Steering pump and stabilzer cylinder. I did both on Saturday as well as flushed the fluid and replace with new fresh fluid. Still hard steering. Wheel does not recenter during turns.
Any advice or direction is appreciated. This last string did not display end results. Please let me know if this was resolved.
