front wheel spacers/alignment HELP

I installed pfadt coilovers and they were hitting on the tires.. so I installed a set of HR 20MM SPACERS AND they don't seem to be right?? the lug nuts (gorilla locks don't seems to be going on enough.. (maybe they are just didn't seem right)...
But my biggest problem is the front in shaking I can feel it in the steering wheel big time... I am wondering if I need to realign now that I added the spacer and that is what is causing the shake??

thanks for the Help

Having a bad alignment won't cause the front end to shake like that. Check the wheel weights first and then make sure the wheels are on flush and same goes for those spacers and locks.

I didn't have that problem with my Pedders coilovers even after I installed my 1LE tire & wheel package that are 2 inches wider than stock.

20 mm spacers is pretty darn thick. I would be worried about enough lug thread engagement. Pfadt makes extended length studs. Or there was a thread a while back about using Silverado studs, I think BMR used those. Or even some of the CTS-V studs were used. Never tried it myself though.
