Power steering pump or gearbox

Here's the case that I have. On the way back home, I turned around the corner, I noticed that there is some pushing back on the steering wheel. Actually, it is more holding the steering wheel and will not me to turn smoothly. It is like someone is there holding the steering wheel back then suddenly let me go through. It only happens when I am turning around the corners. It doesn't matter which way, I go left or right, I feel the same feedback on the steering wheel. I checked steering shaft and didn't see anything like wrapping around the shaft at all. Steering pump is full. Maybe a tad too low but still have enough power steering fluid. I am not sure if it is the steering gear box or just power steering pump. Thoughts?


'95 F-350 XLT PSD, CC, 2WD, Garrett Turbo AR 1.1, 5spd ZF tranny, LUK, 4.10 Limited Slip, just added Dual Arm Tenisoner. Just added my ol' vacuum gauge to monitor my vacuum pump.
