Default Right rear wheel sticks out more than left?

So my right wheel sticks out more than my left one. I know its not my body because i measured it from the frame to the inside of the tire. Theres a one inch difference. I havent gotten the frame checked out cause its kinda expensive. But it rides just fine. Anybody herd of this before?

Question Re: Right rear wheel sticks out more than left?

Do your shackles look bent to that side?

Did you buy it NEW?

Sounds like the rear suspension is tweaked..............

Do you have it lifted at all? I know when some vehicles are, it changes the centering of the rear axle, and requires an adjustable track bar (i think?) in some cases.

i'd recommend double checking the offset. sounds dumb but it happens sometimes. assuming you have aftermarket wheels anyways....lol

i ordered a set of wheels for my silverado and all the boxes had the same specs listed but one of them is about 3/4" different offset so obviously a mix up on their part
