steering question - groan turning right

I have a strange problem with steering: turning the wheel to the right, there is a groan/grinding sound. No noise turning left at all.

Where do I start? I did some figure 8's in a parking lot, much to the amusement of everyone but my wife, as the manual suggested a noise could need purging the box (said do figure 8s...).

I haven't bled the fluid yet, but the level seems OK in the reservoir.

There are no neon signs underneath saying "hey dummy look here" so... I'm not seeing anything too obvious; the whole right-only bit has me confused.

New panhard rod, drag link, and track rod, all with bushings, new steering damper, new power steering lines and reservoir. New swivel balls, upper pins and bearings, all new seals and one-shot grease in the housings, and all new seals in the hub assembly...

Thanks in advance, for any advice.

Did you recenter the steering after all the new parts were installed? Is there a steering stop bolt on the drivers side swivel housing? JP

Does your new steering damper have a ridiculous gas charge ?(ie Bilstien) if so when turning right you are trying to compress this and if your PAS pump is at all on the weak side it will complain. Tuning left the aforementioned gas charge will be working in your (or the PAS pumps)favour.

new steering damper is OME. Same? This makes sense.

Nah, the OME should not have a positive charge. Check that it is not binding somewhere in the travel. Sounds like you have a weak pump anyhow.
