1978 Bronco Ranger XLT

I have a 1978 Bronco Ranger XLT. It drove fine for about a year and a half,
but now it only steers in one direction. When turning right, it steers
fine, but its really stiff when turning to the left, and is now impossible
to drive. I think that it could be the steering box, but does anyone have
another opinion?

You have a steering gearbox problem. The simplest solution
is a salvage yard replacement. There are also rebuilt
exchange units avaialble from most parts suppliers. I have
for some reason had problems with some of the rebuilts. I
suggest you use either a NAPA or a Ford reman if you choose
to go that way unless you enjoy the work involved in
changing it.
