Steering Question

So I got my 3" lift installed with adjustable lower control arms and an adjustable front track bar. Now after getting an alignment and drive lines all adjusted. The steering seems sloppy when turning to the right. I'm wondering since I replaced the front track bar do I need a drop pitman also.

Absolutely do not need a DPA. Check to make sure everything is tight.

Yeah did that a couple times. And when doing the lift I didn't loosen any of the steering components. Everything seems tight when sitting in the shop moving the steering wheel back and forth. There's no slop or delay then.

I had the lift done by a local shop and I don't have the "numbers". I guess what I'm wondering is since my drag link and my new track bar are not exactly parallel would that give me the sloppy steering?

Correction not the lift but the alignment done by a local shop.
