mad 2003 windstar steering problem

Just replaced LF inner tie rod, sway bar bushings and sway bar links. Had an alignment done. Now when I turn right hear a pop and can feel it under your feet, when steering wheel returns it is off center. First only did it on hard and tight right turns now does it whenever make a right turn. Now wheel jerks and pops feels like it is catching on something. Steering wheel has gone around 3 times in last 2 days, 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time. Had rack and pinion, power steering pump replaced last Nov could it be gone again. Seems like it is skipping teeth. Garage that replaced it says no, think they just do not want to honour warrenty.
