Default Steering

I just put an all sports 4 inch lift on my 2003 DS. Everything went fine wheels alignment no problem. Thing is I have 1 1/2 turn each way with my steering wheel. I noticed today going up a hill on my home course while turning on a switch back curve I didn't quite stay on the cart path. It seems it don't turn as sharp as it did with stock suspension. Anyone else notice this when installing a lift kit.

That's strange. When I installed my 6" lift, my turning radius stayed about the same.

I have looked and the rack and pinion are going full travel. I think the drag link attach may be longer, it is easier to turn and that would account for it.

I think I found the problem. I measured the distance from where the rack and pinion connects to king pin. The old one is 4-1/2 in. The new one is 5 in. That would explain it. Like my lift and ant no way I'm changing it back.
