    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.
