I have a issue with A arms and springs! Help

Hi all, I have a 66 BB 396 that I have 90% restored. The front drivers side seems to "sag". The front "leans" towards the drivers side. So today we took the Springs out to check everything out. The bushings are new and in place the shocks are new and the springs are new BB springs (OPGI). The A Arms are original. When we took the springs out it they were not seated correctly in the upper control arm so we set it correctly in the upper. But then the lowers were off on both sides. Is that normal? Are Control arms BB/SB specific? Are shocks BB/SB specific? I'm at a loss. The front also when turning feels like it is "floaty"
It is original steering box, can I tighten it up?

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the info,
we were using spring compresser and did get it in the upper pocket, but the lower would not line up on the bottom. Where the spring stop on the top and bottom are not lined up with each other or 180 degrees from each other. Not sure what deal is! thought maybe they made front control arms that were for Big Block and small block but havent seen anything on it.
Does it matter what year on the jeep steering box?
