Passenger front wheel - set back? Drivers side front wheel forward?
It's really bothering me that the passenger front wheel is so much more set back than the driver's side. maybe an inch or more closer to the back of the wheel well. If i put on larger tires it's going to appear even closer. when you stand off the passenger side of the truck, it just looks so uneven. the wheel doesn't sit in the center of the wheel well. the driver side front wheel looks just kinda set forward, almost like the axle is crooked. I asked the guys at the local reputable tire shop, who just aligned the wheels, and they said it was just the way Ford built these trucks, and that this isn't the result of an accident or any mechanical failure. Previous owner had ball joints and some other front end parts replaced, including the track bar. Anyone know what i'm talking about? are there aftermarket kits to adjust this? i don't believe my truck has any lift at all. my theaory is that the front axle on one side shifted back on the leaf spring. there's a 4" block above the read axle, but nothing on the front. looks stock. there's a pic in my gallery. thanks.
