    Do you have magnetism on the S2 coil when angling to the right?

    The only thing that can cause BOTH issues (lift instead of angle left and no angle right) simultaneously is if the S2 isn't shifting.

    Even though you changed the S2 it doesn't take much to damage the valves during replacement. An even slight over torque will twist the stem and lock'em up. Time to recheck your work.

    Have you tried hooking up a different controller? Borrow someone elses and eliminate that as a possible problem.

    Try cleaning or replacing the ground ends. It wants to do something other than what you are telling it so it sounds like a ground. I have seen this many times with other brands
