Steering Stabilizer help

I have a pull to the left in my Jeep and we narrowed it down to the Bilstein SS. Right after I installed the SS the pull started. The charge on it might be to strong, but I can compress it down with my hands. I also had to compress down the SS due to turning left would extend the SS to much. This added even more power to the SS in wanting to extend and worsening the pull to the left.

I hope I explained it well enough. I need some advice on how to eliminate the pull to the left due to the SS wanting to extend. Is it over charged?

The easy solution would be to loosen the bracket let it extend back, but wont that damage my SS with every left turn?

Not sure of the PSI in those but I know the Fox and Synergy ones we sell are both set at 40PSI. Never had a issue like this with ours. I bet the shock is set at to high of a PSI and not letting it reset after a turn.

I had a TF SS but it started leaking. I didn't even have it for a year before it started to leak. Thought Bilstein would maybe be a better choice
