I have a 96 prostar with sticky steering only when it's on plane and turning right. It wasn't ever like this so I greased the 3 zerk fittings today. My question is the rudder zerk was nearly impossible to put grease into, is this normal? I couldn't see grease coming out anywhere.

You may have grease in the rudder housing that is very old and very hard. You might want to pull the rudder, clean the shaft and housing. While the rudder is out use the grease fitting on the rudder housing again and see if the grease goes in easier.
