Chain link problem?

So I put in a 50 foot run of 4 foot tall chain link. The problem is that when I pulled it tight using a couple of come alongs and a tension rod hooked to my end post (that my gate is on) it pulled my end post off level. And now my gate won't close. I need to know how to fix this. It is in a foot and a half of concrete but it still moved. What should I do?

Chain link problem?

You'll have to dig out the concrete base on the side opposite from the lean angle, and jack or pull it back plumb.
Good luck!
