I can't seem to figure this problem out. The lift blocks, centering pins and springs are lined up and look fine. If it is the front axle, how would that be corrected? And also, I watched it from behind going down the road and the left front wheel sticks out more than the right front does.

Measure points diagonally across frame, should be equal. Look for buckling etc.
