3" spindle lift on a 2wd 99

So I bough a spindle and shackle lift for my 99 the shackles went on just fine. When I got the spindles off and attempted to put the new ones on I ran into a big problem, the spindles dont fit at all when I get them on I have zero rotation, I have called the place I got them from and it is the right fitment so they gave me the manufacturer's number. Any help is greatly appreciated

If you look for a how to on here, it should show you the issue. With a spindle lift, it's necessary to trim a good bit of the bottom edge of your lower control arm around the ball joint. It is also necessary to grind off the steering bump stop from each side. Hope this helps
