2013 F-250 Carli 2.5" Starter Lift

Ok, So I got the new lift put on with help from a friend of mine yesterday. Everything went well except for the center pin for the passenger leaf springs. Driver side went in with no problems, but when we moved to the passenger side somehow the bolt got a little crooked and we ended up stripping the threads about an inch or two from flush. Being that it was midnight we put the U-bolts on and called it a night until I can get a new bolt from carli and replace it. Anyone have any suggestion as to what went wrong? maybe the axle turned on us? I just don't want to do the same thing with the new bolt. Well, hope yall like it!

And here's the last two. Sucks you can only do 5 photos at a time. I tried to show progression in the order of the photos.
Y'all enjoy.

Thank you, Honestly I haven't driven it enough. Just drove it back home and I car pool to work. Going to try and get it aligned on Monday and not drive it much this weekend. The steering wheel is 90 degrees to the right to keep it straight lol. But it did feel a little better on the way home
