or cracked frame... if you have lifted it, unless you switch to crossover steering, you will turn sharper one way and not far enough the other way.

Another thing to check is that you properly centered the steering wheel & gear box before re-installing the pitman arm. That would address the more left than right.
If your tie rod ends are worn and loose, that could yield some of the 30% play.

See if you can have a buddy move the steering wheel back and forth to see where the slop is.

Crossover is definatly the way to go. But if the frame isn't the deal,and the bolts are tight,and the rag joint/coupler isn't shot, check the worm adjustment on the gear. Did you install a new pitman arm on the knuckle to compinsate for the lift? The drag link will be to short after the lift and cause the steering to come up short in one direction. The pitman arm on the gear is master splined, so the draglink is where you make turning adjustments and to center the wheel. $.02
Pretty much owyhee rock man has covered all the possibilities.. if you check all the mechanical areas, then the only thing left is crossover. If you are going to wheel this rig alot and will ever even think remotely about running bigger than 35" tires, a crossover is a definate... may as well do it now as later. my .02 as well.
