Default 6" Zone lift done! Got a question?

I installed my Zone lift saturday 6" with the 5 Inch coils in the back truck looks good, however the turning radius is pretty bad. I noticed that when i turn the wheel as far as i can either way the steering nuckel touches the front spring? That just dont seem like it should happen. Is this common? By the way i will post pics when i get time.

First thing that comes to mind is that maybe the steering knuckles were installed on the wrong side of the truck but the likelyhood of that is slim to none because the tie rod ends would be on the wrong side.... Have you had the front end realigned since the lift install?

You will lose some of the turning radius with the lift due to the design of the steering knuckle but it shouldn't be hitting the spring. Turn it all the way to either side and look at the knuckle in relation to the lower control arm. You should see where the contact is.
