Rear tires not centered in wheel well

I recently installed an 8 3/4 from a 68 Satellite 2 door and my rear tires are way to far forward. I have about 1.5-2 inches in the rear but about 1/4 in the front. I reused the /6 rear springs could that be why. I also understand that my tires are really tall but I would think that I should still have a little bit more clearance. I will post pics when I get home form work.
