Over the weekend i was running over some rocks and i was backing down some rocks and i landed on my bumper and a little on my shackle. Well afterwards my steering got all screwed up. There is a little tension when i try to turn to the left and not so much when i turn to the right. I can crank my tires all the way in both direction. My set up is open in the front and I have 35" tires. the wheels were straight when i landed and it wasn't that big of a drop.

Could it be that i partially busted my birf? Or something with my steering setup?? I guess i should also mention that i have Scout P/S on my rig.

I've never broken a birf on my rig, but to me it sounds like you've bent something in your steering set-up. A broken birf would make some grinding or popping sounds, and I don't believe it would affect steering.

All the steering in straight, i bought a new drag link that should come in tomorrow because i have some slop in that. other than that i don't know what else. I"m SUA so my springs protect most of the steering.

IMO, not a birf....more likely steering or spring related...you didn't BEND anything up there did ya?
