One side sticks out more than other on rear axle

Not sure what is going on with this. I just added add a leaf and a 2" block in the rear and with the new tires mounted the passenger side is sticking out a full inch more that the drivers side. I have checked the measurements and the wheels and I cannot figure out what is going on. This is more than likely something that I should drink a few beers and sit on the porch and stare at it for a while to figure it out....but I figured maybe one of you might have a heads up for me. They both have 1.5" spacers as well.

Oddball offset rim??? Hope the spacers are the same and installed correctly.

Yeah the spacers match and are installed correctly. The rims I will check and see if there is a screw up but I don't think so. Going to measure from the frame out and see if maybe there is something weird with the body.

Re: One side sticks out more than other on rear axle

Could be that the rear axle is not properly centered. Maybe it was installed after a couple of beers.

Herb-

Ha no beers before the work is done! I am going to run through it tomorrow and see what I can come up with. I am sure it is something minor that I over looked...or perhaps it was off before but with the smaller tires I never noticed. Wish me luck!

Got the replacement wheel in today and should be on the road tomorrow after fabbing the front shock mounts.

Excited to get the beast on the road and start the (new) interior build.
