Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
I had this problem on an '81 Cougar. It was dirt in the steering rack and /or proportioning valve. Rack and pinion systems are suseptable to sticking due to contaminated fluid. Also, if you used the incorrect fluid - that can be the cause of this problem.
You can try to change the fluid, that did help some on mine. In the end I needed to go to the salvage yard. If you change the rack - don't forget to have an alignment done.
