power steering problem

I have a 79' dodge cb300 van, and I had to take out the steering box to fix the upper shaft seal. After I installed the steering box, I jacked the front end up, started the engine, turned right-to-left to bleed the system, but when I drive it, it turns to the left pretty easy, but real stiff going to the right. The system also is a brake hydro-boost for the power brakes, that works with the power steering if that helps. Has anybody had the same problem?

you may have to turn it to the right hard and shut off motor .
let set 30 min to let air out .take cap off reservoir .
repeat a few times .check fluid for air bubbles foam .
