Without the servo connected you can turn the steering all the way left to right. Good that means there is no binding.
Here's a question for you...with the servo and steering link connected, AND with your radio on, you cannot turn it all the way to the right, using your transmitter...??
You need to look at a few more things:
Is your linkage from the servo to the steering rack long enough?
Is the servo horn centered properly?
Are your radio end point adjustments set @ 100% both ways?
So to set this up correctly do the following:
Turn on your radio without the steering linkage connected to the servo. Adjust your radio so that your end point adjustments are at 100% and your dual rate is at 100%. Then make sure the servo saver is centered on the servo....the manual should suggest at what angle the servo saver should be. You may not be able to get in on there at the perfect angle...don't worry...you can fine tune it later. Check the measurement of the turnbuckle that connects your servo saver to the steering rack. Again the manual should suggest the proper length. Reconnect your steering and try to turn left to right with your transmitter. You should be able to have your steering knuckle touch the C hub on both the left at the right side. If you find that your servo can travel further than your steering knuckle, dial back your end point adjustments until the knuckle barely touches the C hub.
Yes that is a lot to take in...just remember one step at a time.
This is a decent video to give you some background on what I am talking about, if you are unclear with some of the terms I used:
