Lincoln rocker curved back

Hi Joyce,
I think one of the problems is the customer replaced the side stringers. He didn't make them like the old ones, they are well over an inch thick and angled in towards the middle of the rocker. And, the holes were smaller than the originals. I had to drilled the holes to the same size as the others. I think the stringers are balling me up. I am hoping, with all the advice that I have received here today that I can make this work.

Thank you.
