      Power steering squeak only when turning right

      I have a 67 C10 with a 5.3 swap and stock truck accessory drive. It also has a CPP steering box. I get a slight squeal but only when turning right. It will do it at all speeds and typically starts when I get it turned about 70% to lock. Any ideas on this? I am perplexed by why it does not do it when I turn left.

      Two possibilities come to mind. 1. the pump naturally draws more power to turn to the right for some reason. 2. something in your suspension is binding turning to the right causing the pump to work harder.
