Steering Shaft Strength

Not having any issues, just got me thinking.. I was replacing my front wheel bearings the other day in my 2000 F250 4x4 with the 7.3, and I turned the wheels with the engine off and wheels on the ground. As expected, the steering wheel was EXTREMELY hard to turn

Just got me wondering, is the steering shaft designed to be able to take this kind of force with the without the power steering pump operating? It certainly seems like something should break with the amount of force required to turn the wheels

Just curious.. maybe it would be a good idea to replace it with 350,000 miles, even though itís not giving me issues
