2014 jkur steering box!

Hi.
Here is the story.
Last month i hit a rock on trial which bent my stock drag link. My steering went south put i made it to home.
I orderd jks flip kit and install it no problem.
After i centered my steering i found my jeep doesn't turn to left as usual.
It does turn to right more than i was before i bent mu drag link.
I disconnected my SS to confirm if my SS is the problem but i got same result. Still i can't turn to the left.
I disconnect the drag link also to insult if the problem form my steering box or something is binding on my steering linkage. But still i got same result.
SS disconnected and drag link disconnected the result is 1.7 turn to the right and 1.3 turn to the left.
Sector shaft looks good too.
What could be the issue?
I assume something inside the steering box going wrong?
Any help guys.

Did you make any adjustments on the trail to get home when you bent it? Sounds like you need to readjust the DL limit the left turn and equal it out.

There is no such thing as "one too many" ... and there is no such thing as a "finished jeep" project

Start from scratch...
Disconnect the drag link.
Turn the wheel all the way to one direction.
Turn it all the way to the other direction, counting the turns.
Come back exactly half the number of turns.

Is the wheel centered? If not, the problem is somewhere between the steering box internals and the steering wheel.

If the steering wheel is centered, look at the pitman arm. Compare it's position to that of another JK when its wheels are straight. The shaft could be twisted, and still look good.

He's already turned the steering wheel lock to lock with the drag link disconnected. As long as the clock spring is properly indexed to the steering wheel, it will be OK.

But, if what you ask can happen, it's already happened.

If you're a retard. But if you're like most common sense having people you won't push harder when you feel it's at the end of the turns

I did what you say, but still its turn to the right more than left its not even with or without the drag link disconnected.
So i think its something wrong inside the steering box.
Any way next week i will replace the whole steering box including the intermediate shaft and the pitman arm.
I got a used parts form junk yard for cheap.
I don't wanna drive my jeep for safety reason until i fix it.

When you're driving straight, is the wheel centered? And in answer this, make sure the wheel is not a FULL turn off. It could be 360 degrees off even if it looks centered. It is probably possible to mis-adjust the drag link this much.

It's really pretty unlikely you broke your gear box such that it can't turn one direction. It's conceivable, but really not likely.
