Question about 1996 Jeep Cherokee Country
I think its the bearing on the end of the column shaft it is under the master cylinder ith 1 bolt you must unbold the the column and slide it back a bit after removeing that bolt. Spine the wheel and see if it's still stiff if so get a new one. If not jack up the front start and turn back and forth, if that was better then tires or alingment. My bet it is the bearing they have a cap on them to keep mud and such out but often fail there are 2 bearings 1 in the column also but it will be the one outside that give you fits. They feel stiff in spots and will not return so you can do cookies with no hands.haha. Hope this helps.

The steering box has an adjustment to adjust for to much slop or play in wheel, this would explain the wheel not returning as you let go of it, sounds like someone tried to adjust it and over tightened it or steering box is bad.
