So I installed a new steering stem and bearing along with new ball joints. Without the ball joins and arm intact it steers just fine (tourqued to spec) but I realize my issue with the steering being so stiff is with the ball joints. Do they take time to break in? Out of the 4 I bought 2 were pretty stiff, the other 2 were less. Let me know if there is something I can do. Thanks.

After toying around I figured out it's actually an issue with the top bushing. Sort of. The bolts were a little too tight. The steering is slightly looser but not by too much.
