ok, so we did the body lift today and all seemed good part way through the test drive. then i noticed a knock at a certain point when i turn right, but not back to straight or leaft. we figured out that the steering extension is hitting the metal piece that i dont know whats called above the coil. i later noticed (on my way home) that i cant turn right while braking unless the car is stopped. any ideas?

btw. the performance accessorys body kit is a piece of shit!!!

I'd contact the company who made the kit first, but before that go back and double check everything is tight or not overtightend.

Were there torque specs on the directions?

the sterring shaft extension was hitting the top of the coil perch. Grinded a nice 45 on the edge and grinded the head of the bolt down about .1"

I strongly recommend doing this with this lift before installing.









plenty of clearance now.

this lift was all fucked up, we had to build extra blocks, modify others, modify the steering shaft extension, i think thats it. \
