leveling kit issue

Hey guy, 2005 f350 ccsb 2.5" leveling kit with 325-65-18 on stock rims. I bought my truck with a 2.5" leveling kit already installed and now notice that my coils are bowed. Is this an issue with the coils not being orientated properly or the 2.5" spacer tipping the axle ahead causing the arc? I've tried searching but cant seam to find what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance.

you cant tell in the picture but the coil is straight up until about 3 inches below the tire then bends over.

Hard to see, but I would assume that the lower spring cup is not parallel with the upper cup. Ie. The axle rotated clockwise, from the pics point of view. Is there any type of alignment adjustment at the axle side of the control arm??
