Axel moved after lift

Hey
After i lifted my truck 2" whit new leafs in the front from Procomp, i can see that my front axel have moved a bit side ways, about 1-1 1/2".
I think this must bee beacouse of the reaction bar fron the axel and too the frame, since after the lift, this have a totaly different angle now after the lift.
Is there eny thing i can do to make it right again ?.
Is there maybe som new upper backet for this stag ?.

using a drop bracket with only 2" lift will just relocate the axle then same distance the other side. You need to lengthen the tracbar or use an adjustable one.

I did onley mount new springs and shocks, notting else.
I was also thinking that the best way must bee an adjusable bar, but who make this ?
If i knew what **** this whoud make fore me, i whoud go whit a complite 4" lift whit pitman drop and all inklude.
The problem her in Norway is that no lifting at all are leagel, so you just get the police on youre back all the time.
And you also have to go 1 time every year fore full control whit thes trucks, its realy sucks too bee a truck addickt in Norway

Superlift makes one for a 2.5". It's the one I went with after trying a couple of others. It works great and is far stronger built than most of the others I've seen. Careful, some were really junk and caused worse trouble than running without one at all.

I can't remember the part number but, here's a link to their site. I'd probably call a knowledgable dealer before I paid for shipping to Norway to guarantee I had the right one. Otherwise you might end up like Betaracer said./\ 2005 - 2007 Ford Super Duty F-250 ¾-ton and F-350 1-ton 4WD Pickups · Superlift · www.superlift.com

don't know if you guys know this or not but.... I have never seen a SD that the axles line up compltely with each other.. and you can really tell they are off once you put a lift and bigger tires on if you really look at it...
