"HELP NEEDED" REAR AXLE MOVED DURING AAL INSTALLATION

Hi Guys I really need your help new to this forum. Saw some pics on this site by another member of how to install toytec rear add-a-leaf and ran into a serious problem. First of all centering pin is off and axle has turned inward now my passenger tire almost touches the rear mud flap and centering pin is almost off of the axle. I couldn't fit the AAL so I put the stock leafs back on. Any idea how I can move axle back so that centering hole on axle matches up with centering pin on the AAL's? There is a slight slant of the axle. These are stock tires 245/75/16 and its so close to the mud flap.. Many thanks for any reply...

jack the truck up by the frame pull the tires and loosen the u bolts and recenter the axle, then torque the shit out of the ubolts and put everything back together

Yep, set truck on stands, remove wheels/tires, loosen u-bolts, shift axle back into place with center pin into hole on leaf spring perch, tighten u-bolts to about 90 ft-lbs in criss cross pattern.

Man it into place. And what the other guy said. Don't worry about messing up alignment.
