It looks normal on the ground. Sorry I don't know about the uncompressed portion of it.

it doesnt have to do with alignment. My buddy had that issue when he did his 6" lift. he said he just spun them a little until it was straight mine arent perfectly straight but you cant tell.

Mine are the same way. Its because of the radius arms. Put a 4 link on and it will go away. Or an adjustable radius arm (ie.. 3link) from PMF or OUO... its just because the axle surface is no longer square with the frame. U should also look into a set of castor cams to bring your castor back to good specs.

If you didn't use a adj track bar the axle is also off to one side..

Typical of cheap lifts...equals unsatisfactory results..do it once do it right.
