Im thinking of buying a 2000 dodge Dakota from a used car dealership. only problem is the steering is going. when you turn it isnt that tough, a little more than usual but the real problem is that when you make a turn the wheel doesnt slide back. it stays and you have to manually turn it back. i have been told by a friend that it might be the steering box and am going to tell the dealer to fix it but i just want some second opinions so i can be sure that it is in fact the steering box. thanks for all your time and help.

It most likely is the u-joint in the steering shaft. I think the whole shaft will need replaced. I have heard some people use a spray lube to buy some time.
