cupped lower control arm trouble?? 69 c10

Hey guys, i have a 69 c10 and just got done cupping the control arms to drop the front a few more inches....every little bit helps!

I know this mod has been done numerous times, so I wanted to see if anyone could shed some light on my situation.

I got the cup cut and plate welded in last night and wanted to make sure everything fit up. If I had been thinking I wouldve tack welded first then checked but, like I said I have seen this mod tons of times. I cut the desired amount out of the ca's from pictures of other members who have also done it with success. Rookie mistake!!

I got the bag centerd in the lower cup to make sure it didnt rub, it looked good! I purchased a pair of upper plates from suicidedoors bolted them up and raised the lower control arm up to check alignment.......and the bag sits back about an 1 1/2" from the top lining up with the bolt holes!???

I redrilled the top plate to align it, but it just bothers me tha it doesnt line up properly?

I have no idea why its not lining up? If anybody has done this mod and can point me in the right direction Id really appreciate it!

You need to make sure your alignment is with the bag at ride height.
