Durango steering box trouble shooting, hard to turn right.

Hey guys, I just installed my durango steering box yesterday bc my old heep box was leaking. I plan on jumpin up to 35's soon which is one reason I went for the upgrade/replacement.

I was just curious as to why it is tighter/harder to steer to the right VS the left turn. I know my tie rods n such need to be replaced n all too but i dont think that would cause that problem. my old box steered each way the same. could it be the 33 inch tires? can my pump not handle it?

When you say that it's hard to steer right, does that mean the steering feels like it's catching on something or there's more resistance? I've had a durango box in mine for about a year now and the only difference I noticed was a tighter feel to the steering. I'm running 33x12.50 15x8

does your jeep have an airbag? I think there might be some kind of sensor that causes that hard steer. take it to an alignment shop and see what they say.
