body lift questions

I finished installing all the lift pucks and new poly bushings today. I had to do some cutting out of my floor and weld a new plate up front for the grill riser. im doing this 2" lift without the directions, cuz i lost them (i bought the lift 1 1/2 years ago) so i know i got to lower my radiator to line back up w/ my fan, but i may just leave it cuz im about to put in the 350 motor. Now my questions: What do i gotta do for my steering??? it's really tight to steer now. and also my break pedal feels stiff. the 2" lift did not come with any components for the steering column. all i got left is some lowering brackets for the radiator, a couple extensions for the exhaust brackets, and a transfer case shift lever extension. <---im not doing this either until i see what the atlasII will need. I wont be doing any off road stuff until nxt year so im not worried about the shifter, and im switching to an automatic trans (TH350) but any help on the STEERING would be much appreciated...thanks!

did you remove the steering shaft during the BL install and re-align it after the BL pucks were installed?
that´s what the install instructions say.
