Default Harder to steer after leveling kit?

I just installed the 2.5" HBS leveling kit over the weekend and i noticed that it kind of feels stiff while turning? Is this normal? It just feels a little different before i installed it

I don't know for sure.. But isn't an alignment required after a levelling kit?

Just curious if you got your alignment done?

I installed my 2"HBS & the dealer messed up my first alignment setting it to stock specs (retards). Its pretty bad where you have to write the specs you want down for them to do it properly. Going back today to get it fixed

I went with 2" because I heard that 2.5" stretched some parts out to much.... this might be what happened.... Is your steering arm still the same angle as before the leveling kit or does it seem like its on more of an angle?

I had read some stuff after a google search about the 2.5" lift and the guys at 4x4 warehouse said the same thing.... that the extra half inch can cause issues.... I guess some people never see issues and some do

If you have a leveling kit instaled at the dealer would they do the alignment with out asking for it or is it something else I will have to fight with them about?
