update(#2) wrecked 6.0

been driving it for a little over a week now and have most of the minor things corrected, however my rear axle is 1 and 5/8" out toward the rear on the drivers side. i will take the rear suspension apart and align it before i install my new ladder bars. the left side took a good hit (enough to shatter both left wheels). i may have to put a come along on it. i don't know if it sheared the alignment pin or not. any suggestions or things to look out for? oh, the frame is still perfect certified by ford to be in spec. the new body and bed went on perfect with no alignment issues.

Are your leaf springs bent or leaf spring shackles bent. That would push your axle over to the driverside.

no . there were some bent parts on the front suspension but i purchased new springs from one of the org members and the other parts were taken off of the new truck that i purchased for the body. it is not out left or right. it is out to the rear on one side. it makes the truck go side ways slightly down the road.

Truck is dog tracking. Just try and align the rear axle straight.

Ohhhh,around the chesapeake bay area...we call that "crabbing"
NOW, If your pickup is crabbing AND your cargo bed is torque-twisted ,with the right rear corner sitting higher than the left rear corner (very common)
we call that TOYOTA!
