its possible you have the brackets on upside down the inner brackets there angled i did it once.

also the 98-00 bumpers have the bolts are moveable inside the bumper brackets. also your PA lift brackets might be bent

Yeah, the PA brackets are weak junk. I broke off 2 of the studs just tightening the nuts with a wrench. I would also recommend looking at all the brackets.
