2002 tahoe power steering works to left, but not right
Chevy tahoe 2002 5.3 not 4WD (Z series I think?)
power steering works great to the left but when I try to make right hand turns, it is like there is no power steering at all, any ideas? can this item be rebuilt?

I think something is placing a very high lateral load or stress on the box and that is the weakest point, hence the breaking bolts. So you should take a look at the other swivel or motion points in the suspension to find out what is fighting the movement of the steering box.
Call a dealer service guy and see if there is a recall or a technical bulletin on the issue.
2004 chevy tahoe 4x4 had the same problem wont turn right at idle - like no power steering , has hydoboost brake steering system , did test and found steering box bad , removed box and remove the top cover on box 4 bolts at hydralic cover and removed and found spool valve has 4 seals 1 outer was blown i replaced box with reman from advance auto about $200.00 and flushed system , drove great problem solved .
asker: Also, it helps if you're rolling at about 2 mph with the steering wheels straight. You cannot shift into 4LO with the wheels turned or when in a drive gear. Also, it may be that you need the electric shift unit serviced. It is not recommended to drive on dry pavement while in 4LO.
gregg it is best to allow a vehicle some right hand lead due top crown of most roads. road crown is designed to slope right and factory vehicle alignment usually follows slope. if u fall asleep or lose steering control of vehicle road crown" right float" will lead to ditch instead of oncoming traffic. if this really bugs u ask alignment technician to make left wheel .2 degrees more positive camber then right wheel and request caster be set no greater then .3 degrees difference between the 2 wheels request printout to verify. this should remove lead considering there is no tire pull. general motors compensates for road crown using caster typically but i prefer camber compensation
First of all why are you doing it? I am having an issue with my 02 Tahoe, 5.3, 4wd, that mainly when turning left, at any speed, usually when not on the gas, it is hard to turn. Feather the gas, and all is fine. Does occur to the right sometimes, but not as noticeable. I did order an new pump, and am changing it Friday night, Jan 2. I will let you know if you did not already complete.
