Power steering issue!

So i just got back from a short drive and the steering was very tight. Looked under the truck im guessing it was power steering fluid all over the left side of the axle and motor. Need help guys.

Re: Power steering issue!

Yupp it was the low pressure return line and boy was that a b*** to do and man it is alot of tubing for a return line. Took about 3 hours to get the threads to finally get them to go into the sterring box So much better now though.
