Ok, I think I messed this up....installed my DB3 bracket, upper and lower control arms, uppers at 18” and lowers at 20”. Installed true dual rate 4.5” coils and coil spring alignment correction retainer. It looks like my axle is too far back, or my coil spring alignment correction retainer isn’t seated properly, but my springs seem bowed towards the front. Here some pics, looks to me like axle is too far back and doesn’t line up with spring upper perch🤷🏽‍♂️

Ok, so I got home from work and monkeyed with the spring alignment retainer, I also shortened the upper control arm by 3/8”. So upper is now at 17 and 5/8” the lower is still at 20”. It looks a little better, pinion angle doesn’t look bad, but I’ll take it to a alignment shop that specializes in 4x4 see what they can do.
