    I finally got my Blazer able to be driven safely and I've noticed a problem with the steering. When I turn it to the left it turns no problem at all, but when I turn it to the right, it only has about half the turning radius compared to the left. I already installed the new steering arm that came with the lift and that helped alot. One other thing to add is that my steering wheel is upside down, but I doubt that has anything to do with it. Can anyone give me some advice on what I should do? /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    <font color="green"> You need to adjust the drag link to be longer. </font color>

    Yes the short one. This will also straighten out your steering wheel. Try one full turn of the sleeve then drive it to find out steering wheel position, the adjust again.
