Did you recently upgrade to taper bearings or is this the stock bearings? How is the steering tight? do you mean it tends to favor certain ranges of motion or is it tight all around? Assuming its old bearings and it favors certain parts of the steering than your bearings might have been worn out at certain spots creating a divot or space. This takes more effort to get out of the divot if its really deep. Now assuming you upgraded your bearings and there is no divots, someone or you might have tighten your lock and yoke nut too tight (that is what happened when I over tightened it). Also another situation is you might have installed certain parts wrong like the top bearing was installed on the bottom or what not.
