Steering Tightness

Recently I replaced my drive shaft w/ a brand new one. I notice that my steering has gotten tighter.

It feels like my power steering isn't working as hard as it did before. Before I could steer with one finger, but now I need more.

Do you guys think i should try a power-steering fluid flush?

Sometimes if the drive shaft was remanufactured to tight which would cause your steering to stiffen up in which case you should get a new one. But under normal circumstances the shaft will losen up a bit with more driving and everything should be ok.

My ball joints, bearings tie rods are all in good condition.

my initial gut feeling was that it was drive shaft tightness.

they are brand new drive shafts.

could it have to do with my actual steering department needed lubrication?
