Default 1998 Ford Ranger shakes and vibrates when making sharp turns

A few weeks ago I had my truck towed. Truck would not start.
Had truck towed to a shop. Find out I need to get a new fuel filter.
So I get the work done and the mechanic tells me the fuel filter is good but now the truck shakes violently for an unknown reason when turning.
He said he couldn't figure out the problem but I might need to replace the power steering pump and rack.
I read somewhere that air could have gotten into the steering lines?
I read that this happens sometimes when you move a car while it's turned off?
I don't know anything about cars but could this be the problem?
There was NO SHAKING OR VIBRATING AT ALL prior to this.
I already put about $2,500 into this truck just this year I can't afford more work.

If this is in the wrong place feel free to move it.
Thank you.

Hmmm... Sounds odd. I've never had one get air in the system from moving it. However from working at a shop I can tell you a specialist needs to look at it. Take it to a GOOD alignment shop. Ask around to find a good one. They should be able to tell you for sure

Do you have it in 4wd on a dry road. That will make it shake on sharp turns. You didn't say whether you had 4wd or not. The type 4wd on Rangers is to be used only on low traction surfaces like mud , snow, or sand. The all wheel drive 4x4 is very different and can be used on all surfaces.
