Default Leveling Kit Question

Hello,
I am new to the fourm, and have been browsing it for a while, and i have a question that i can not seem to find the answer to. I recently hydrolocked my ranger, so have been doing a complete mechanical rebuild of the truck. I figured since it was going to be done for the long haul that i would put overloading springs and belltech shackles in the back to give it a little lift. I also used rough country leveling coils to get the front end up in the air some. After installing the leveling coils, there is a very apparent slant to them. I am curious as to how to fix this, as i don't believe there should be that much of a slant to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

it looks like your coil bucket is also slanted. was it like this before? and how does the seat on the axle look, bent, straight, rounded?

The buckets were always slanted, and the seat on the axle appears flat.

Aligned as in centered? or from side to side? Side to side looks good, however where the ttb bolts to mounting bracket, the arm looks like it has a small twist on it.
