Im guessing your talking about the angle on the balljoint. It dont look right not sure why spindles would do that though. You could get balljoint spacers or filp the balljoint

is that with or without weight on them? With weight on them the angle should improve.

Also you could put some ball joint spacers to help a little.

I installed my Fabtec spindles and 5664 springs this is how it looks so I have stopped.





I double checked to make sure springs seated correctly they are. I know I will need to get Tk alined will that take care of this. Or do I have a problem.
the reason it's at that angle even after fact you flipped balljoint is because that's at FULL DROOP. You need to let truck down and it'll go back up which gets better angle.

However, even so, you might have more negative camber, which means few shims will need to be removed.

Were the springs installed or the lower balljoint bolted in when you took those pictures? It doesnt look like it?

Im not sure exactly where you stand but right now it doesnt look like your at a point where you could figure out if you have a problem yet or not but I dont think you will.

This is great reason NOT go go 3" lift coil because that how it will be. 2" lift coil will give you bit room but you still go full droop at steep angle but at least it won't be pressured heavily.
