Pinyon/caster way high!

I'm installing 06 axles and suspension on my 99.

I got the chassis as a roller and it had a 6" lift kit on it..I sold the lift cus I'm going stock with a leveling kit.

I'm installing the axle and right away I see a problem...




Any thoughts?
Cus I thought the caster can't be adjusted...everything is stock apart from the obvious...

Please help, I dieing to get my truck back on the road!

Is the full weight of the truck on the axle? If not I would put jack stands just under the axle and set the truck back down on it and see where it is. Then you can decide where to go from there. Post more pics if you put the weight of the truck on the springs.

Have you put a jack under the axle and jacked up and see if they will seat with some pressure. If that don't work. Maybe seat the spring on the axle first, then try to seat the coil in the bucket
