Figured share my experience, I was having the same problem. I know my steering box needs to be replaced, it's leaking pretty bad, but the steering on road isn't bad. I let the truck sit for a couple of months and it got real low, started it up and it frothed up badly and couldn't steer.
Jacked the truck up bleed the steering MANY times and it was still having problems turning to one side, drove a few short trips with no improvements.
Jacked the truck back up turned lock to lock 20-30 times engine off and let it sit over night...twice! That seemed to do the trick, steering is back to normal now...I just have to remember to add power steering fluid regularly.
That said I'm reading the forums here looking for what is a good reliable, budget friendly replacement steering box...lol
