Bad turning radius with 78 ford dana 60

I recently swapped out my dana 44 which had terrible turning radius for a 78 hp ford dana 60 and I'm still having bad turning issues. The wheel is centered I counted rotations both ways. My axle has high steer Adam and the draglink is nearly perfectly parallel to the ground. I'm using a stock yj pitman arm on a astro van box. And ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Pitman arm too short/ high steer arm too long.
