Front end looks off!

I bought my truck about a year ago 2008 250, 35s and i think a 4 inch lift i also notice 2 inch spacers so its higher in the front.i had it all checked out at the ford dealer and they said everything was good! the problem is i notice the hole axle is shifted or is shifting to one side. it looks like about 2 0r 3 inches, the steering is pretty hard any help would be cool thanks

if its lifted check the pan hard bar(trac bar). check if its the stock one with a drop bracket. or if it has an adjustable one then maybe it needs to be adjusted. it should have either of the two listed above.

check the bars like said above. the alignment might be correct BUT if you have a 4 wheel alignment done it will tell you if the front is pushed to 1 side or not.....

Icon and Carli make a real good one, cant go wrong with either. But if i had to do it again id go with carli only because they angle the lower portion that connects to the ball joint in such a way as to not prematurely wear out the ball joint.

Did you check to see if you have a track bar drop bracket. Most adjustable track bars are good for a truck with up to 4" of lift without a drop bracket. Assuming your truck has a 6" lift then you should be running a track bar drop bracket along with a dropped pitman arm.
