69 Chevelle upper control arm

Hi, ever since I raised the front end with heavy duty springs to clear the headers and a deep sump tranny oil pan the upper ball joint is wearing prematurelly. The upper control arm is angle so high the Ball joint is not centered. It's angled. Can any body help me?

Thanks
Louis

You could use a ball joint spacer but new control arms would be the ultimate answer. Check this site.

Rodder18 is correct. Replacing the control arm would be the best solution for that. A ball joint spacer should also do good but to achieve full solution, just go with the whole control arm instead.
