steering needs a drop pitman or raised steering arm and a adjustable drag link. thats if it has a lift. most 1st gen dodges can clear 33s stock

adjustable drag link. i just went through the same thing. of you can put crossover steering on it. hahaha. when u lift it it changes the angle of the drag link. even with a drop pitman arm it will not correct it.

More than likely its the geometry being all messed up. A bad steering box could cause it to be hard to turn one way but not limit the travel. Or if someone put on a Pittman arm and didn't have the steering box centered. Does the wheel spin same amount left and right?
