HELP! Front axle not dropping

I'm installing my 3.5" readylift lift kit, we have everything on the front end disconnected; trac bar, sway bar, tie rods all taken off. Frame is jacked up and both sides are supported with two separate jacks. When we lower the jacks at the same time the axle magically catches on something and we can't figure out what. Any suggestions?

Update: Fixed it. One of the shocks wasn't unbolted and was catching it.. Don't you hate that?
