Question Steering Issues

I have a 21' Shallow Sport with a Suzuki 140 and Sea Star steering. The steering was kind of stiff so i purged the system and greased everything. It smoothed out a little but seems to stick when I start to turn the wheel. It also "bounces/sticks" on the cylinder with a slow turn of the wheel (out of the water). My question is, do i need to change the seals or could there still be air in the system? I am pretty sure i got all the air out.
Thanks for your help!

texasoffshore is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I had a friend who bought a used 21’ Shallow Sport with a 150 SHO Yamaha with hard steering. After bleeding system and checking out cylinder he found that the wrong steering head was installed on boat. It had the high performance steering head and he changed out steering head to what sea star suggested and it steers smoothly and without much effort. Just something to check out before you do a lot of work.

Sounds like you still have air in the lines
