Axle trailing

During my jeep lean adventures I noticed my rear axle is not trailing evenly. The rear axle trails about an extra 1"-1.5" toward the passenger side. How do you correct/change that?

Re: Axle trailing

What do you mean by "trails"? Is one side farther back than the other?

Re: Axle trailing

If your standing behind the jeep and looking at the rear tires, the back tire on the passenger side extends about 2.5 inches beyond the body where the rear tire on the driver side only extends out beyond the body about an inch.

Re: Axle trailing

That may be the body, measure from tire to tire front to rear on both sides and get back to us.

Re: Axle trailing

Hey mine is the same way. Drove us nuts until i changed body mounts and just moved the body over. I didnt move the body enough but i was by myself and could move it enough.
