08 rear leaf spring?? help please

OK i got an 08 f-350, ever since i have had the truck the right rear tire is closer to the rear of the fender than the left, so when i did my lift i made sure that the spring pin wasnt broke, its good, made sure the block was in right and everything, still shifted back twards the rear fender.
Then i made my own ouo style traction blocks, and when i drilled my pins i made sure everything was centered, axle is still shifted back.
So today i pulled the rear leaf off thinking that maybe the spring pin isnt centered on the leaf spring, so i got it off and it looks to be the same, and you can really have it on the wrong way because the front bolt is bigger than the rear shackle bolts.

im focking lost some help would be great, from what i can tell the bed is on straight, and the distance from the rear of the frame to the front spring mount is the same, so i dont know.

anyone bueler bueler?

Im tempted to drill the block differently but im going to have to move the traction bar mount forward if i do that,

you can see in this pic pretty good how far its shifted back, im suprised no one cought it before



this is about the best i got of the other side but its way more centered.

This is a crappy pic but you can tell even before the lift it was already off, now the lift just amplifies things

That is very odd. I would have guessed the pin too but if it is good I could not imagine what it is!

Hmm... frame mounts are off or something maybe? That's weird for sure.

You gonna be around tomorrow? I'll be passing through Cheyenne sometime.

i have looked at the frame mounts and from whati can tell they look ok but i was working by myself so i couldnt hold the tape on anything to get good measurements, im tempted to put it together and take it to a frame shop and see what they think.

I work till 4 anytime after that though i should be around.

its all good, im tring to deal with this on my own because no one in town will even touch my truck with my wheels and tires, and i dont have stockers, and im sure if i take it to the dealer they are just going to say the lift is whats causing it,
