    I've researched this on some other forums but I consider the guys on here the experts. After getting my trucks lifted I measured and noticed that my rear passenger tire sticks out about 5/8" farther than the rear drivers side. Is this normal? I've read other places that it has to do with torque that it wants to pull to the right so their fix was to extend the passenger side a bit more to alleviate this. Also checked other forums for Ford Chevy etc they say theirs are the same. Any help?

    What rear setup are you running? I have heard of this happening on tacomas and some said it was the bed that wasn't aligned correctly. They just loosened the bed bolts to re-align. Try checking the gaps between the cab and bed.

    Sorry meant to say lift setup, I've read cases where the axle gets misaligned after installing blocks.

    I'm the same way, I had to get the alignment shop to adjust the steering wheel on my truck because it was just a tad bit off.

    It tracks normal no uneven wear or anything. Not a huge deal just was curious. I have flares on my truck too that may not be exactly the same. I'm probably just overreacting like normal

    they are all like that. even stock.

    bed can definitely be misaligned (mine was) from factory BUT centering the bed will still show rear axle to not be centered.

    the reveal at the cab end vs bumper end caps can be different as well. best to just not look too closely at it. last thing I read about it someone was guessing the misalignment of the axle was probably intentional and related to driveline vibes.

    My rear end isn't centered. One tire is closer than the other and the other sticks out further. I never noticed anything else being off under the truck it's like the axle just isn't equal lengths.

    Our trucks are a crooked mess. Driver's side lean, bed is off center and the rear axle is shifted to the right. :notsure: Still love my baby.

    Mine was off as well, didn't really notice it when I purchased it new but after installing an Icon stage 5 with rear leaf pack I was looking closer and it stood out. I checked my brothers bone stock '14 Platinum and it was off by 1/2", mine was about the same. Crank a hard left and it goes an inch the other direction lol so like what was stated in a previous comment just don't look that close lol. I surmise that if your bed is aligned and you loosen the axle u bolts and rack axle the opposite direction before tightening you could probably get it close but I'm not a fan of forcing things to sit where they don't want to, tried that with my Italian wife and trust me it didn't work out well for me hah.

    Hey, its possible one of the wheels has a different offset than the rest. We just lifted a Taco here at the dealership last week and 1 of the 4 wheels was a different flippin offset, not by much but the tech didnt notice it until it was all put together. The back side of the wheel should be stamped with the offset. Its odd but it does happen.

    Has anyone found a solution to this problem. Just put bigger tires and noticed it on my 2017 CM 4x4. Passenger rear tire sticks out more than driver rear.
    Have toytec 3” in front 1” rear
    295/60R20 Ridge grapps and 1.25” spacers.

    Ya this is some BS! Didn’t notice it until the other day and then found this thread. I’m ocd af. I’m thinking about getting a wheel with a more aggressive offset for the drivers side (+1 offset instead of a +20) so that my drivers side will stick out as much as my passenger side. Idk. It bothers me idk if I’ll sleep tonight Lol
