So I accidentally deleted the armature modifier and when I go to make another one, my object warps. When I try un-checking vertex groups, the armature will line up with the object again but I cant use it for animation. So how do I line up the armature and mesh with keeping vertex groups checked?

To fix this follow the below steps:

  1. Select your mesh
  2. Hit ctrl+A and choose apply Scale
  3. Do same step 2 and apply location and rotation
  4. Select your armature
  5. Switch to Pose mode
  6. Hit Space Bar and choose "Apply Pose as Rest Pose"
  7. Select Mesh then select armature and hit ctrl+P
  8. Parent with automatic weighting

It will be working fine as shown below:
