Yes, the angle is poor using a stock Ranger shackle. Despite what you hear, the Chevy spring swap is not a perfect fit.
Using the stock Chevy shackles won't help much because they have almost the same dimensions as the stock Ranger part. Longer aftermarket Chevy drop shackles will improve the angle but also lift the rear of a Ranger an additional 1"~1.5".
