The pitman arm and track bar need to be lowered together so that their angles match each other!
That is why at first there were no lifting issues when turning the wheel. The only issue is some suspension binding because the track bar is now pulling the front axle toward the drivers side which causes the axle to be off centered.
Now that you added a longer pitman arm, the draglink is at a different angle than the track bar which causes binding when turning the wheel which in turn causes the suspension to raise and lower.
You need a dropped track bar mount to match the dropped pitman arm.
The more expensive lift kits include these parts so that everything is matched up when the lift is installed.
