Did you notice the steering wheel was not in same location as before the lift? 
Drive it in a straight line, get out and look where the pitman arm is off bottom of steering box 
Ideally it should be sat in line with the chassis leg see picture below. 
If it's not then you will need to undue both ends of steering drag bar hub and steering box the one in front of axle. 
Keeping both front wheels on the ground rotate the drag bar till pitman arm is in location in a straight line with chassis leg. 

However this will probably not fix your airbag light situation

Replied by Mike G on topic 04 jimny 3" lift advice
I recently had the same airbag issue.  Whilst doing my body lift, I had turned the wheel too many times in one direction and pulled the ribbon contacts off.  I took the clockspring unit out, used a lighter to burn back some of the insulation on the ribbon cable and had a go at it with a soldering iron. Keeping the ribbon tidy and loosely wound was a bit of a pain when putting it back together.

It worked for a while, but I will have to fix it again as the soldering isn't very well done and every now and again the light blips on.  If it fails next time I'll just bite the bullet and buy a used one.  But it would be enough to get it through an MOT.

2" Trailmaster suspension lift, 2"body lift, snorkel, full breather kit, 29" steel wheels with BFG tyres, tinted rear windows, CRT CB radio with modulator antenna mounted on rear, dog cage and tray in the back.
