another D30 steering ?

I finally got around to adjusting the steering stops on my D30 (narrow track if that makes a difference). When I turn all the way to the left, the stop now hits with about 1/2" gap between the tire and spring pack. When I steer left, the stop never touches, I have 1 1/2" between springs and tire, and the steering pump is maxed out. My question is why is there such a difference in directions. Can I realign the pitman arm or something to even them out?

Re: another D30 steering ?

you just need to lenghten your drag link until you get the same travel in both directions.
