New forks and pinched stem.....

Like the title says, I got new forks. Near brand new Directors. Traded my current Kink Strife 1 forks, $41, and a near new anodized red Mechanik halflink chain. First of all, my freakin 2.4 Chase Hawk rubs so I have to run them just a bit lower than the inside end of the dropout which is already totally ridiculous. Then I go to go the bolt and coin trick to undo pinched stems and mess with spacers for like half an hour. Then I tighten it down good and my front end still make a hollow sound and the headset spins like absolute shit. Any advice? I might just trade my stem cause there's no way I can fix a pinched stem that bad.
