Question about 1999 GMC Suburban
Reading your symptoms seems like it's a cv joint, aka front axle, and not your steering stop. If it's a cv joint it will lock front tire up while turning and almost learch one end of the truck up as it turns. Does this sound like your problem? if so I bet that's your problem. Steering stops, normally there is an edge on the knuckle that hits the control arm to stop from turning to far. With turck on ground, turn wheel all the way and visualy check to see if tire is hitting frame or something else. If so, I don't know how to tell you to fix. Sorry.

The tirerods on the burbans can get wedged when turning sharp. Have seen a couple do it.
Just to double-check, you can Check for your stearing trim is in the middle and not pushed aside. Once you have done that, take everything apart, gears out and etc... turn on the car. Let the servo center and pop everything in as carefully as you can and close as the middle as you can. Re-assemble and see if it's any better.
Also, check your servo wires leading onto the board. See if any of them are loose or have even fallen off.
Another possibility that I have seen is when you turn the wheel all the way to the lock, the power steering pump is still trying to turn it further, which is why the steering feels jerky. You can blow up the pump, or a hose, by holding the wheel against the lock. You won't turn any wider if you let the wheel come back one quarter turn, but you will take the pressure off of the pump.
