Power steering hydra vac issues 2000 f250

I had issues turning left and stopping so I changed my power steering pump and reservoir, and the hydra vac. I bled the system by turning wheel lock to lock (Wheels up not running) That fixed the problem for about 2 weeks now It’s tightb turning to the right. I’ve tried bleeding the system again turning lock to lock (not running) about 60 times each way. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sounds like the steering box, not a pump. How about with the wheels off the ground? Still stiff?

Does it have plenty of stopping power?

It's not uncommon that people get a bad power steering pump out of the box. Sometimes multiple times.

Maybe I’ll change it and the lines both and see what happens. Thanks for the advice
