Icon4 Alot of bump steer and a chatter

I have been working on installing some backup lights on my truck all night and I just went to put the truck up and noticed ALOT of bump steer and a chatter when I turned the wheels. I didnt touch anything to do with steering.

What would cause this? It worked fine when I parked it and started working on it. I dont want to drive somewhere and my ps pump die on my or something break.

Low on PS fluid or the belt tensioner froze up (not like that EVER happens on these trucks) not keeping the belt tight enough ?

The belt should be tight, no noices from it but ill check it. I checked the ps fluid a couple day ago, guess ill check that again to.

It seems to turn very easy like it should, but now it just has bump steer and chattering. Ill check those thing tho, thanks

Ok well I had to drive the truck today. It slowly got better as I drove, so I went to empty road and went from lock to lock a bunch of times working the ps pump and it seems way better.

I think it has air in it, I dont know how it got air in it from setting for a couple hours but I think that is it.
