Procomp Lift Probs

I just installed a 4 inch Procomp suspension lift on an 86 CJ7. Now I'm having problems with the stock shackels sitting right. 3 of them sit at almost 90 degrees and look OK. The front drivers side is laying back, flat against the frame. I checked the measurments when I put the new springs on and everything checked out fine. I've tried loosening the bolts on the shackel, take the weight off the Jeep, then set it down again but the shackel keeps goning overcenter. My theories range from the stock shackels are too short, to the actual spring is too short.
Has anyone else had this problem?

Also, with the 4 inch lift, am I going to need to lengthen the driveshafts? Thanks for any input.
