steering feels different after add a leaf

I put an add a leaf 2" on my 98 classic, I had an drop *** look going on. The install went well no problems, I like the results. I did not add any lift to the front still factory. My steering has a jitter feel to it at low speed. like pulling in the driveway you feel it. Only feel it on slow turns. I greased all joints and all parts look to be in great shape. Do you think that small of a lift is putting pressure on the steering gear and giving it a stressed out feeling. Any Ideas would be great.
