area you raking in the front?? is the rear higher or lower??

Chances are it could have thrown off the front. Do you feel it pulling from the rear?

it is raked. about 1” over what the truck was stock (i think). Didn’t think it would be enough to mess up the front tho.

Whenever you change ride height or positioning your geometry changes and its best to go get an alignment.

Check the center pin on your springs.

meaning? I put it back in straight and torqued it to spec.

i do have a difference of 3/16 to 1/4 from spring and rear spring pivot points so maybe undo the u bolts and re tighten to see if i can get it straight.

so jacked the truck back up, loosened the u bolts, using some ratchet straps pulled the rear end parallel with the leaf spring pivot bolt location, then retorqued. Also took a measurement from the front wheels to the the rear wheels before and after, 7/16 before under a 1/16 now and drives like it did before.

Might still get an alignment but will do it at my next service.

thanks for the help everyone.
