To be honest if it's torque steer then even with hydraulic steering it's going to be heavier one way than the other. Obviously you can choose different capacity pumps that will increase or decrease the steering ratio to suit your needs.
Try to adjust the Trim level when steering to equal the torque steer and make it easier to turn.
