Default Steering rack

Ok guys I have a serious problem, and could really do with some much needed advice.

My steering rack gets stiff at times during driving not a permanent stiffness but off and on. So I bleed the entire system and changed the fluid, work great for about a week then problem started back, check for leaks NONE check for bubbles in the reservoir to see if air was getting into the system NONE.

And advice will be greatly appreciated.

My advice would be to post in the Brakes, Steering, & Suspension forum, since this topic has nothing to do with the Normally Aspirated Powertrain.

I had the same issue it would be stiff, but cut in and out and it seemed to be the Steering U-joint that was seized, got it replaced and worked fine...unfortunately i replaced it with a used one and the problem came back 2 years later....
