Suspension upgrade

Well last night I put in alingment cams and it cause my wheel to barly touch my fender. I had the thread HELP! truck is down. Well today I went to get DR coils but the place I went to had the Bilstein leveling kit and its pretty much the same and DR is being lazy and aren't getting lifts out. Well as soon as I got homw I went to work getting the new coils on and I only did the drivers side because I had plans tonight but it only took me about and hour to do the drivers side from wheel off to wheel on. Well got everything on the ground and went to test it and it still has the same clearance problem so I'm going to finish the other side tommorrow and then adjust my track bar and see if that helps. The new coils are blue and I wanted black ones because I don't want people to think I have a cheap fabtech lift but they are Ford blue so I'm going to say its a special lift from Ford. Here are some pics of before and after.

Lifted the front of the truck then put stands behind the radius arm brackets then take the wheels off then lower the front and then put the piston jack between the frame and radius arm and start jacking untill the coil comes out.

Hits the inside corner. I could hit it with a hammer and push it in a little but that would be my last resort. I just don't want the tire to catch the fender when pulling into a driveway and bend it outward.

It's the outside of the tire that hits. Spacers would make it worse I think.
