Superlift springs?

Hey guys my first time posting.I've been just reading post for several days before repeating a post, hopefully.I installed a 4" superlift kit on my 95 couple of weeks ago,by the way this is not my first,about my tenth.I measured my bumper before install then after.My 4" lift became a 7",looks good but my truck won't line up ,out over 3 degrees,shop said 2 is about all he can do.Superlift said this is common and springs will settle 2".I never seen that much before and they say they are the right springs,dought it! Anyone had this problem.

Sorry, bud. I can't help and I've heard of them settling a little bit, but 3"??? Sounds hokey to me, too.

The guy at superlift said I need to bottom out my suspension.Sounds a little rough to me.I just put the lift on because I like the look of lifted trucks,I don't 4 wheel any more,too hard on things,plus this is my work truck.Superlift also said they could send me the gasser springs because they would be softer so would set lower under the weight of the ps engine,I put the lift on myself and I don't want to take it off,too much work!
