Fabtech turning radius

Is it just me, or does the turning radius with this kit suck. Seen a pretty big difference with this. Can't even make a U turn. Been reading a lot of post on here about the steering stops and what not. Couldn't really find any info on ways to correct that turning radius problems if any. Can anyone give me some info on ways to correct this if they had this problem on the 6 inch fabtech lift. Thanks!

They reason steering stops are installed is to keep the tire from chomping into the body. If you lose the lift you lose the stops.

I have both kits and yes, the fabtech steering is horrible. My pro comp you can turn until the tires are practically in the cab if you wanted. Not sure if this is good or bad (prolly bad). You'll get used to it, it takes awhile. Learn to back in most places.

Backspacing on the wheels helps too. I have XD monsters and those dont help much either with their offset.
