Problem with power steering


I have a 1981 MB 300SD 199xxx miles, led from the start in California.
Who can tell me how many wheel rotations are going to the full right to full left. I think to me is an error because when I turn left maximum to the wheel is 1 and 1/2 laps, and to the right maximum is 1 and 1/4 laps.
And going up from right to left up 2 and 1/2 laps.
The difference is not too much when I driving, but is observable to the right turn on parking, hard to handle, I need to get too far, more then 6 feet from parking lot, and then turn.
When the wheels are straight, the wheel and he is right.
When I have to take right turns everything is ok.

Thank you.
