Sounds like you broke the steering box internally, I'm surprised you got it too straighten out.

Thats what i thought too so i disconnected the pittman arm from under the gear box and and the steering wheel then turned easily which leads me to believe its something downstream of the gear box .

Check the idler arm, they seem too be a high fail unit, just cause they don't get lubed as they should, happened on my Yukon but I didn't loose steering it just started to make the front end wobble at 20mph.
