So I was doing my lift today and had to drill out new holes for my lower rear shock mounts because they broke off yesterday. Yeah, I know shocker!
one of the holes I drilled ended up being a little off from where the stock stud came out of the axle shock mount. It's about a 1/4" off down and to the right. Will this still work okay?
Also, I noticed when I put on my new rear leafs, the leaf spring tie plate the u bolts goes through seems a little cockeyed. The center hole in the plate is locked into the leafspring properly, but the plate is shifted a little bit to the left if standing behind the vehicle. Should I loosen up the nuts on the U-b

Sorry, I don't know what happened there. Should I loosen the bolts on the plate and straighten it out or is it fine that way?

Thanks for any advice
