I changed my IFS steering on my rig, I didn't change a thing except the box. I filled the system with fluid, cycled the steering and when I turn driver, I go all the way to the bump stops, but when I turn passenger, it turns very little. I might get 1 and 1/4 turns on the steering and it feels like I hit the bump stops, but I am not even close. Is there something I need to adjust to make this thing turn better to the passenger side?

Was the pitman arm changed from one box to the other? I think the box has internal stops.

I put a new pitman arm on the box and have it at the six o'clock position.
center your wheels. remove the pitman arm, count the turns from lock to lock on the box, then turn exactly 1/2 the amount of turns back (I believe it should be like 8 turns from lock to lock. So, if you count 8 from stop to stop in the box, then turn the steering wheel 4 turns back toward center from the stop), and reinstall the pitman.

the box was not aligned with your wheels. you're hitting the stop on the driver side, but hitting the internal stop on the passenger. (i.e. the truck the box came from, had the wheels turned left. Yours was probably centered):flipoff2:

Not that difficult.

Did you center the box before you put the pitman arm on?

Turn the box all the way to one side count the number of turns to the other side, divide by 2 and turn it that much. Is the arm still at six o clock?

I did what you guys recommended, and I now have full steering. It's 2 and 1/4 turns each way and it took all of 5 minutes. Thanks for your help all.:smokin:
