Issues wuth larger shackles

Just put some larger shackles on my jeep this weekend. It all went well except for my rear passenger shackle is tilted toward the middle of the jeep on the top end of the shackle. I dont know if it will settle down after I drive it a little more or what. Anyone experience this before? Thanks

Pics would help. So the frame end of the shackle is crooked?

The frame end is leaning in toward the center of the jeep, not a lot but you can tell

So does that make it sit crooked on the spring eye as well? Did you replace the bushings too?

And is it the correct shackle for that application in particular? Rubber or poly bushings and how old are they?

Does it look crooked on both? Its odd that you say its only crooked on the frame side. Maybe you have a bent spring.
