I noticed today that when I make very slight turns with the wheel that it feels like something is rubbing somewhere.
At first I thought my tires were rubbing the fender but at the minimal amount I was turning the wheel there is absolutely no way that is possible.
There are no noises associated with this, I will double-check tomorrow with the hood up though.

Anyone ever encountered something like this before?

Did you put the steering extension in?

Did you get the body from A/C or did you do the DYI?

If you did the DYI, you should have loose the steering shaft so it would extended when you are lifting the body up.

I have never read anybody doing this for a 2" body lift. Please let us know if this is necessary.

Ok so I guess it didn't disappear.
I noticed something today, I hear rubbing when I turn the wheel even minimally. Something is squeaking, looks like I am going to have to take a peek under the hood once the sun starts going down.
It does this even when not moving and I confirmed that the tire is NOT touching any part of the fender.

It seems to be that I hear it when I turn the wheel but I feel it in the gas pedal.

I have your answer!! Exact same thing my truck did after 2 inch body lift. What your feeling is the rubber, seal/bumper on the steering shaft. Look under your dash, where the steering column goes through th fire wall, you'll see this seal, all smashed and waded up un the bottom the the steering shaft. This is what is giving you th fed back in the steering wheel. Grease the shlt out of it between the shaft and the seal, and life will be good my friend!

Let us know how it turns out!
