any ideas on why the rear axle is so far foward?
The rear axle is moved forward because you lifted it. The way the suspension works is that when it droops (or is lifted) the control arm arcs down and forward. The higher you lift it, the farther forward it moves.
Think of how a protractor works...as you move it down it arcs to create a circle. The control arms act pretty much the same way.
To recenter it you need to get adjustable control arms, which you can make longer to center it to push the axle back to where it was.
