    I have the u shaped steering arm from pro comp on my truck and it still turns tighter to the right than it does to the left. Do I need a drop pittman arm? I have 4" lift springs up front.

    sounds like you need to centre the steering box by adjusting the length of the drag link

    When you say center the steering box, what do you mean? should I make the drag link longer or shorter?

    Shorter.

    I just adjusted mine this weekend. If doesn't turn enough to the left then you need to make it shorter. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
