Steering Wheel \"Skewed\" After Lift

I own a 2002 TJ, and recently had a 4" Skyjacker installed and 33" BFG MT's put on. I noticed that now my steering wheel is no longer aligned properly. It is kind of skewed to the left. Is this normal? Is there anything that can be done to correct this?
Thanks, Ray

If my Jeep can't get me there, I don't want to go.

Re: Steering Wheel \"Skewed\" After Lift

when you get a lift you need to align your rig. Do a search about doing an alignment on your own if you want to, it was discused a while ago. If you don't want to try and do it your self take it to a good shop that has experiance with lifted rigs.

You have moved the axle farther away from the frame. Now you need to lengthen your drag link. Your steering wheel should be turned to the right some when driving straight, right?

Where in AR are you?
