    i just completed a 4" lift on my '89 full size.
    when installing the new steering arm, i had to extend the tie rod end to mate up with the steering arm
    i did like the instructions said and took the steering wheel all the way one way and cranked it all the way the other way..... then split the difference and that is where everything is now...
    however to connect the steering arm to the tie rod at that location, i had to extend it about an inch or so...
    not a problem, everything steers fine, but, the steering wheel is now cocked half way....
    can i just take the center nut off of the steering wheel and will it relocate and tighten up???
    anyone???

    It will, but you really want to leave the steering box centered and make the drag link the right length so it lines up.
