    My steering on my suburban it right after I lifted it. I can turn the wheel to the right only 1 3/4 to 2 turns before it locks. When I tunr the wheel to the left, it turns all the way. I didn't have this problem before I installed the lift. Do I just have to adjust my drag link? Our do I need to pull the pitman arm and re-install it? My pitman arm is on the right position, so I know that isn't the problem, Plus we never removed it when we installed the lift.

    If you moved the axle forward you will need to adjust your drag-link.
