Wheel Spacers

I put a 6 inch lift and 2 inch wheel spacers on my truck the other day. When I started looking at the back tires, the right side sticks out about a half inch further than the left side. Is there any easy way to fix this?

it looks centered as far as i can tell. The new leaf springs sit on the mount thats on the axle and they look even. I was told that the holes in the bed are made to be adjusted and those could be off a little.

the bed holes cant be adjusted any amount to even worry about... if the spacers are the same size then the only thing that can be off is that the axle is shifted one way or another...

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! your wheels are hub centric NOT LUG CENTRIC.... the hub of your wheel carrys all the weight NOT THE LUGS.... the lugs only keep the tire on but dont carry any of the weight... by putting spacers in then you are requireing your lugs to carry the weight which the wheel and lugs were not made to do.

what you need to do is get the axle centered under the truck or drive it the way it is... those are your ONLY two options you have
