Default Air in power steering line?

I just did a change of fluid for my power steering. Now my wheel is harder to turn sometimes and it vibrates and the power steering pump makes a noise. I used the recommended ATF fluid. I searched and followed the few guidelines of turning the wheel lock to lock about ten times or trying to drive around in figure eights. Neither worked even though I tried them both a few times.

So what should I do?

leave it overnight for the bubbles to settle and then go through the bleed sequence again - do the lock to lock a few times with the engine OFF first so any air in there doesn't just get whisked up again by the pump

I gave this a try this morning (after letting it set since last night) and it worked pretty great. I might do it once more after tonight, but otherwise it's in much better order. Thanks for your help
