93 Taurus - Steering Locks when turning Left
My 93 3.8 Taurus has a scary problem. When you turn the wheel to the left, it acts like it is catching on something and doesn't want to turn, you have to give it a good nudge (temperature dependant, really bad when cold out, but sometimes seems not a problem when warm out). It never does it turning right. It will catch right when you start turning left, and if you get past the catch, turn back to the right just slightly (but still turning left, just moving the steering wheel back to the right slightly) it will lock again.
I really hope its not the rack itself because the car is really not worth the work, but at the same time i really need it but i don't want to die in it either lol.
I see from looking around there are alot of steering issues with these it seems but i can't find a case such as mine. Does the rack bolt to the body or to the frame on these? I didn't know if there is a possibility there are bushings that mount the rack and are worn out bad enough to cause a catch in the U-Joint where the steering column connects to the rack.
I hope someone has had this issue and knows a fix (hopefully cheap and easy lol, or at least cheap).
