Installed:shackle relocation brackets passenger spring not lining up


So the driver side went in pretty easy. The brackets them self look even in relation to the bumper bolts on each side. You can see my springs look a little jacked. What am i doing here? It seems a little too far off for me to just pry just checking in thanks!

Now try using the camera at a distance that it can focus in on, plus I would want to see the shackle and mounting angles.

You can likely pry it into place, maybe mkve the U clamps on axle tube a bit, may need to move both axle clamps to keep things centered.

What would that show? A pic from the rear showing both axle tubes and the center section would be needed.
