turning radius doesn't seem right

I don't think it is my imagination, but my turning radius seems off. When I look at the wheels at full turn, they don't seem to be turning far enough. Any thoughts?

are the tires rubbing the radius arms? You can always back off the steering stopper bolt.

No, I am running the stock tire size, no lift etc. But all of a sudden it seems the front wheels don't turn very far?

Check the steering stop bolt on both sides and check your tie rod ends and track rods, make sure that they are not bent.

Yes, my 90 is stock. I ran into a fellow yesterday who also has a 90 & we compared how far the tires turn. It looks like his are about the same (he has a 1997 I have a 94). I guess I just never realized before that the wheels didn't turn that far?
