Ok, new tires just before lift, from stock tire size to 31's. But he drove it about 1K miles on the new tires before putting the lift on and did not notice any dif. The steering change is that it takes more muscle to turn the wheel, no slop in the wheel before or after. The lift is dakkar from maf. Keep in mind that this my brothers so I may be vague on some answers here, he did go with a lighter duty spring for the ride and I believe the left was 2/3 inches. I hope this helps! thanks for the help!
I helped him do this but i just remembered he did change the steering damper before he came over to my place to do the lift. Logic would tell me that a new damper could definately effect this, correct?
A new steering dampener can be felt in the steering wheel...
Also, since lift, did ya get front-end alignment checked ?
It can/will make a difference on handling, a more firm wheel can result from the lift...
A sloppy wandering rig can result from a lift
...depends on the sping manufacturer...
...and did ya install 'em in the right direction ?
....( there is a 'front-back' to each spring)
.......( in addition to springs for front axle, back axle)
We definately did get the springs on correct, front/back and reversed or not. He did not notice the difference in the steering after the new damper and before the lift was installed but only after the lift. I wonder if it could be a combination of the lift causing the new damper to be stiffer due to the angle and maybe a combination of needing a front end alignment.
