I think my p/s box has issues

08 49K on the clock and i noted the steering is tight. and if i turn slight right or left it don't return on its own. i checked everything and it is the box that is so tight and if i push the Pittman arm it moves ok from right to center then gets tight and it wont move. i have to hook the drag link up and put a long bar in the knuckle to get it to go past center. the truck just seems like it has tight ball joints when you drive it but every thing is good and works smooth when it is in the air until i hook the drag link to the Pittman arm then it gets tight past center turning to the left.

any one ever run into this?
