Have crappy sterring radius. I know it dosen't turn on a dime but the other day me and a buddy from work went to go get lunch. When I made a turn in the parking lot my buddy says, is that all the way and I said yeah. He has an 07 Titan and Iv'e got an 06. Both trucks are stock height and have stock wheels and rims, but he says his makes way tighter turns that mine. Does anbody know whats up with this.

He's mistaken (unless your truck has a problem). 04 to 07s are identical. Wheelbase and steering componants are the same.

To answer your first question, Yes.

Compared to some other trucks I've driven, the Titan is one of the tightest turning. Would be interesting to see a comparison with hard numbers though.

Sounds like your buddy is one of those, "one up" kind-of guys. He's been there, done that (but better). Always has a better vehicle, louder stereo, better story/experience.

That's my story also, I think the Titan turns great...Now I did lose some turning after installing the CST 4" lift spindles, but after grinding the steering stops, I'm just about back to stock...

you nailed it right on the head...anything you have, hes had better or he knows someone who has something better.

You think this is bad. I can turn my truck around in spots that my lady's Volvo S60 AWD can't! I've already seen her MISS the driveway and have to back up to turn in sooner! :rofl: I don't think the turning radius is bad on this truck, especially for how big and roomy it is. Heck, with the rear backup sensors, I put this thing in a spot that a Jetta came out of on the streets of Harrisburg. Try that in a Turdra...... :lol:

i don't think that the turning radius is all that bad for this big of a vehicle, but the steering ratio is too slow... in making the same turn-in in a road/driveway/whatever i have to turn the steering wheel at least another 1/3 round than compared to a 4-door 2005 dodge. that dodge was much easier to drive.

I just put the Pro Comp 6" on my Titan, now it feels like I am driving a Freightliner with the turning radius. So, as you stated you did some grinding of the steering stops and that helped, but I have very little knowlede of the underside of the truck. If you could (or anyone else) just fill me in on what exactly you grinded down and how much, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
:cheers:

rack and pinion vs reciruclating ball.

I like rack and pinion better because you can somewhat feel the road as you turn (sporty feel). the recirculating ball is for caddys and way too easy to turn the wheel.

I wonder if it is my truck then...because even on a regular road if i had to make a u-turn i would have too find a BIG space to do it or i would have to back it up to make the turn.
