steering wheel cocked after lift

I put a 2" lift on and now my steering is cocked to the passenger side?

You just need to adjust your draglink to re-center the steering wheel.

Yep, happens all the time. With the lift you have effectively moved your steering box farther away from the axle, which in turn makes your draglink too short which causes it to pull the pitman arm to one side and turning the steering wheel off center. Luckily the draglink is adjustable to correct this.
