it could be bad bushings on the a-arms. has the car been hopped any or driven while locked up ? those can both cause the crossmember to colapse.
yeah i street hop all the time. how can i tell if the crossmember has collapsed,

It's probably the upper A-arm mounts that has collapesd a bit, or the crossmember. Check the frame for cracks...

check to see if the frame ears are bent of torn up front... also did you use shims? because the shims will take away from the angle too..

When my shit is locked up, The back of upper a arm is touching the frame on the left side but I can almost put my finger between the rear of the arm and the frame on the right side...

I dont see any cracks, and I've searched extensively.
