    Hello guys im new to all this so if there is a thread on this please forward me to it. So here's the issue I lowered the rear of my 1980 2.2 by removing the two middle leaf springs and with 3 inch aluminum blocks but now my axel seems to be shifted towards the left making the tire rub on my fender any thoughts on how to fix this ?

    Axle or block are probably not sitting correctly on the pin.

    Are you riding on just the main leaf now?
