Sounds like something in the tie rod has broken. Perhaps one of the tie rod ends, or the turnbuckle. Crawl under there and look around. The problem should be obvious. The fix would be to replace the broken parts and then have the front end realigned.

What would cause the power steering on a 3500 dodge 1996 to work in one direction and not the other direction. Replaced the power steering pump and had all the front end rebuilt within the last year.?

The problem with this concern could easily be the steering gear. The power steering pump is responsible for providing fluid pressure but the steering gear will provide steering assist with the fluid pressure depending on steering wheel input. with the front wheels suspended and the engine off with the pittman arm disconnected from the steering gear the wheels turned left to right by hand at the tires should turn with the same effort both ways. if not, the concern is within the suspension (ball joints) or steering someplace. If the steering effort is the same suspect a steering gear fault.
