trouble steering right

hey guys,
I drive a single cab 1997 f350 on 35 x 12s and a 1.5 in level. A tree recently fell Across my hood but thankfully didn't touch the motor, however, I can no longer steer to the right. My front end looks good, and it still drives straight as an arrow....but when stopped it's almost impossible to turn right, and even at speed it's more difficult to make a right turn than left.
There is absolutely no issue turning the wheel to the left, even when stopped.

anybody else have this issue?

I have power steering fluid, But my power steering pully is moving alot on my belt. could this be the issue?

Re: trouble steering right

I would say that something is bent in the steering linkage.

Get the front end up in the air with both tires off of the ground and see what it does. If there is still a problem have someone work the steering back and forth while you watch the parts as they move.

Other than that take it into a alignment shop and have them check it out.
