Steering Column Issue

I'm back with a new question. My transit's steering seems odd. I can feel it go easy to stiff to easy to stiff especially when I'm maneuvering in a parking lot. It's as if the universal joints in the steering shaft are binding. Does anyone else notice this? I took it to a Ford dealer. And they agree that this does not seem normal. They have since replaced the steering column with new shaft. I have driven the van another 1000 miles, but my concern is still there. They do not seem confident about what to do next. I do not have time to drop this van off because I use this for work and cannot be without it. So I am just wondering if any of you other transit drivers have noticed this? I will pursue this concern if it is not normal. But I just what to make sure I'm not trying to get them to fix a "normal condition". Any thoughts?

Thanks.

There have been a few people who have have the steering pump go out. Usually starts by making noise though.

Update on my steering. So I'm on my third replacement steering column. It finally seems better. They must have had a bad run on these or something.
