1997 F-250 4x4 7.3

I just installed new 43-498HD leaf springs (3 leaf). I cannot get my alignment back with SPC camber caster bushings. The camber is out 2°+ and the bushings can go up to 2.75°. I also have steering pull to the right. I tried to adjust the caster to reduce with no luck.

New ball joints upper and lower, new wheel bearings, one new pivot bushing (After removing the first one and it not being bad I applied pressure to the other and it does not move or deflect I negated to replace it)

There is 1.625" from the bump stop to the top of the shock bracket and the front is about 1" higher than the rear. The axle does not seem to be parallel to the ground and I would think the steering linkage should be parallel to the ground to reduce bump steer.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you tighten all the bushings with the truck on the ground? if you dont they can bind up and make the vehicle do crazy things. BTDT
