Kitchen faucet has low cold water pressure


Installed new kitchen faucet w/pull down handle and the cold water does not have as much pressure as the hot water. What can I do to fix this?

New problem with the new faucet? Both supply valves under the sink open all of the way? Are the supply valves quarter turn ball valves or do they require full turns? If the latter, the cold water supply valve may hung up internally.
