check the offset on your wheels (if they stick out too much this makes the steering heavy).

Here are two more ideas: You may have too much fluid in the system, it should be about 1/4 in below the pressure inlet on your tank. If that is OK next check to see if you can change the pressure on the worm gear in the steering box by adjusting the allen head ***** in the top of the box,it has a jam nut like a poly lock. Allowing more pressure here works the box easier. Try these and see if they help.

Loosen the three bolts that hold the sector to the frame and then try it. Sometimes the frame horns get twisted a little bit from bumping or crashes. This will cause the steering box to be in a bind and turn hard. If this is the case you might have to put spacer washers between the frame and the box.
