Re: 2 Questions: Radiator & steering

Three inch body lifts are pretty extreme for anything. When you put such an extreme lift on the body, the steering shaft is maxxed out. I can almost bet that as you accelarate and the vehicle weight shifts towards the back, the steering shaft is binding, therefore causing the stiff steering you describe.

The fix is a longer shaft, such as one from either Borgenson or Flaming River. If you have metal fabrication skills, you should be able to either modify your stock shaft and make it work or build a new one with new shaft joints.
