do you have the same size rims with the same backspacing on all corners? maybe the truck was in a wreck...yours is a 2wd, right? the 4x4s have wider front axles...dont think the 2wds do though...

maybe the frame is tweaked and either the body isn't straight or the front axles is over because of it.

Check the U bolts and the spring center pins. Couple years ago a guy on CK5 noticed his rear axle was shifted out to one side. Can't remember exactly, but the center pins had done something and the U bolts were loose, and the whole axle had shifted over.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
