Re: SD Diesel steering issue
Open the hood and spray down the steering knuckles with lube. After a while they'll rust and cause binding problems. If you get tired of spraying them every few months you can replace them as well. I believe the 2000 had recirculating ball steering, which has a different feel than rack & pinion, but shouldn't bind as you mentioned.
