Exclamation Need Advice....Installing 3" Lift

I am in the middle of installing the Rough Country 3" lift on my J10. I have all the old springs off and new springs on. My problem lies in not being able to center the axles (both front and rear) on the pins. Rear is off by about 1/2" and front off by about 1". I reversed the front springs after realizing they are opposite the factory ones (thanks to a previous post on this site). The front axle is currently too far forward, as I can see the blue markings on the driveshaft. Rear shaft won't come back far enough. I've wrestled with this all weekend and just want it to be finished. Any advice/tips/tricks? Am I missing something?

Appreciate it, James
