    I know. Its the way it ended up with the Rocky Road kit. I followed the instructions but put it all together without the engine or body on the frame. Been hoping the springs would settle in to a better angle. Others have had the same issue. I just need to take the time to move the spring mounts.

    My front spring mount is a little different than yours. As you can see I have that extra bolt, that should be centered on the on spring mount.

    May also, want to loosen these bolts and see if it centers itself.

    The geometry of the springs and shackles makes small adjustments to the mount location amplified at the end of the shackles.

    One inch at the mount was enough to move the shackles angle about 1.75”.
