I have a 1990 Toyota Camry and it gets REALLY stiff when I turn the car
either way. I checked the power steering fluid and it is full.
Someone said the steering box could be the problem, another said the
rack and pinion.....

I would like to have a good idea of what the problem could be before I
take it to a mechanic. This being an old car they could find a lot $$$
of things to fix. I want to be specific as I am getting ready to sell
the car which is otherwise in great condition.

Thanks in advance for any advice!!

imho, two things I would try:
1) check the two universal joints at the base of the steering column -
on inside (under the dash) and one in the engine compartment - see if
they're binding and if lubrication helps
2) try Lucas power steering fix - no solvents or materials that could
harm your steering and very well may help. I would try flushing out the
old fluid first, though.

Just noticed you're selling the car. If the Lucas solves your problem,
let the new buyer know.
