After looking closer the jeep turns normal left, but only 1/4 way right and you can hear the power steering pump bottom out like its normal full crank? I unhooked trackbar again and got same result.. before I lifted everything was normal and I didn't touch any steering components

is the pitman arm straight back with your wheels straight?

I had a similar issue when I did my lift originally, do you have adjustable lower/upper CAs? Your axle might be pushed to far back, throwing the steering linkage out of whack.

Im telling u right now this kit is going to be nothing but problems, the leafs will shift on u, once they do the bushings will be done and need to be replaced, the control bushings last about a year if ur lucky. the shocks are useless, the coils are good thats bout it. the swaybar discos break like toothpicks. other than the coils its worth scrap price if that. rough country products are truly pieces of ****. Im not being harsh or mean, im just speaking the truth. the trackbar if u got it is also useless. i have gone through literally other than the coils 3 OF EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Yea i got the kit new with the jeep, I plan on ordering IRO long arms in a couple weeks. And I will probably get a set of full leaf packs after the front settles fully. Id never order a rough country kit after reading all the stories and experiencing the ****ty ride. Approx what page in your build is the info on?
