Question 08 drop shackles installed and o/l removed?

So I dropped my 08 ram 1500 QC and the bolt that runs threw the leaf spring doesnt line up with holes on the mount of the axle...Is this commen? Can this cause issues? And how do I fix this?

Thank you for the help!!
Matt

Default Overload spring tip!!

So I learned the hard way that you need to lift both sides and remove both overload springs at the same time!! I did one side and dowell didnt fit and moved to other side and it was way off were i couldnt even put the u-bolts back on!! So dont do one side at a time because the differencial twists!!! geez Im glad that adventure is done!!!
