    Been there. It's a bad ground connection somewhere.

    If you have a rag joint in the steering system make sure there is a jumper wire across it so you get proper ground connection to the top end of the steering column.

    ^^^ Maybe.
    If the rears are working, then the rag joint is not the issue.

    Had a similar problem with my son-in-law's 67 Chevelle after we installed an AAW kit. Like RD said, I'll bet it's a ground issue.
