Default not turning well to the right

79 suburban with 6 inch lift , raised steerring arm and stock drag link. it seems that the radiuse to turn to the right is longer than to turn to the right. if i shorten the distance of the drag link and cycle the wheel 1 turn would to the left would this even the turning between left and right? or would installing a 4 inch dropped drag link solve this? thanks paul

cross over steering will help that tremendously...
you say you have a 6" list and have the raised arm... you will also need the "S" steering link to make up for the other 2" you are lacking. The raised arm is only good for 3-4"'s of lift.

one other problem that you may have is burned out drag link ends. I have had to replace many in my time for the same thing.
