99 Grand Marquis Steering issue

I had a problem with the steering binding, so, with the help of this forum, I replaced the steering gearbox. The binding is gone but the steering seems very tight.

At first I just thought it would loosen up pon its own, but now it seems even a little tighter. Almost like having no power steering pump but not that severe.

Any ideas, Is there an adjustment on the steering gearbox? Should I take this gearbox back? Could it be linkage?

Thanks in advance,

Doug

You can test the linkage by removing the linkage from the steering box and turn the front wheels by hand, they should turn pretty easy. This is when it's jacked up and on stands. You may also have a problem with the power steering pump.
