Default Samurai automatic breaks when turn left.

i lifted my Sami with 2 inch shackles yesterday, (i know it is a bad thing bu i am only going to use it for the summer) and when i turned left it seemed to break slightly but noticiably on the front i think. when going under 10mph there is no problem, just when general driving. i do not have a clue what this could be as the break lines are not tight

any help would be much apreciated.

Thanks.

are your front hubs locked or unlocked when this happens?

2" shackles stretched the E-brake cable that much?

You can bend the cable retaining bracket up under the rear floor to allow for more slack.
