Help Needed- 5100 Install

I have everything disassembled and cant seem to get the new 5100 installed correctly.

I basically followed this link. got the original assembly out no problem. I have the new 5100 bolted at the bottom and the spring perch installed on highest setting. I can get the spring to line up with the isolator but the shock wont stay centered. SO basically when I try to jack up the lower control arm to compress everything the shock isn't anywhere close to lining up with the hole. the shock is basically touching one side of the spring. (doesn't matter how much I rotate it.)

finally got it in. it was a PITA Was the LCA making contact with the shock not allowing it to pivot. ill post a pic later. Had to grind some metal out of the lower mounting area to allow shock to pivot enough in order to be centered
