Wonder if that could cause exaggerated loss of turning radius...i thought it was an optical illusion with the front bumper

I noticed right off the bat.

FIX FOR "TERRIBLE TURNING RADIUS AFTER 6" FABTECH INSTALL??!!"

so after all your feed back and answer about my problem i decided i'd pull the trigger and just start cutting sh*t left and right

i added some pictures of my entire process for those who decide to follow my route











i measured to show how much i cut off on mine, if you cut your stoppers, you dont have to cut off as much as i did.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

this is after cutting the stoppers i ran into a little problem on both driver and passenger side next to the coil spring the i had to move over so that my tire did not rub when turning
Its a brake line extension after getting the 6" Fabtech Lift
Had to do the same thing on both sides (driver and passenger side)







---Thats where i moved the brake line i attached it to the arm-----------



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is something i found in the shed, came with a free diamond blade which i used




now i can finally turn normally like how i did before the lift.
thank you again for all and everyone's help, hope my problem ended helping somebody with the same issue

also for those who have a sway bar in the front after a 6" lift, rip that f**ken shit off and toss it before its too late!!!!!!!!!!!!
cuz i went to the beach and went off-road.
30mins in i start hearing and weird thumping noise under the front end
once i decided to check it out this is what i find....









it was so much force that 2 bolts that hold the sway bar were ripped out with no thread left at all to rebolt the bolts
had to drive home with a strap holding the damn thing up so it wouldnt hit my CV joints
