Steering problem

    I noticed the left front tire is getting a bit of a shake to it, and the other day I smelt a burning rubber smell coming from the brake/tire area, so I assume a possible wheel bearing.

    Last night I noticed at a complete stop I can turn my steering wheel all the way to the right, but left I can only go half a turn and it has lots of resistance and will not move, do not really notice it when driving though. Truck has a 4-5" suspension lift, 2 inch body, 35 inch tires. 2004 Silverado 1500 4x4.

    Any thoughts?

    I would advise against driving any further until you have that problem sorted. Sounds like something underneath the front end was either bent or broken. just a guess.
