Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. When you say you cannot make a low speed turn, do you mean the steering wheel will not turn? Also, when straightening up after the turn, does the steering wheel return to center easily, or, do you have to assist centering the steering wheel to go straight again? Thanks

Sorry I couldn't reply yesterday, I had to work til late. I jacked it up today, and turned the wheel to the left and right stops. Then measured the angle on both tires. My left tire has full range, my right tire has about half the range. But it's not hitting anything.
To answer your questions. The steering wheel turns. I have to assist the steering back to center.
The shop did change all the bushings. They also changed the spindles said it had v8 spindles, so they changed it back to the proper ones. I think they changed the steering column too, but I'm not sure.
I really appreciate any help you can give.Thanks,
JoshI took some pics too, if that would help...I can only add one pic, sorry...

If one side wheel will not turn all of the way it may be: A: wrong spindle. B: Incorrect outer tie rod or improper tie rod setting. A good alignment shop would see this.
