F350 axle relocation

Need some help here please!

08 f350 ccsb with snow plow prep package. I put eagle alloy 18 inch rims and 275/70 duratracs on and the front end driver side tire sticks past the fender over two inches. No level kit was put in just the height of plow springs was good enough. Question is, how in the world can I shift the axle to the center to make it as even as possible. I don't want big fender flares to have to cover them. Or at least as even as it was with the stock setup. stock you couldnt even tell it was shifted a bit. Will a track bar relocator totally fix this or not?

Thanks!

an adjustable trac bar will line it up...

What's the best quality track bar and most affordable? How much do they run? One I found said $800 that sounds insane for a steel bar. Anyone got a good buy or good deal on these?

Thanks!

Icon makes a high quality trac bar, that is adjustable while on the truck! There are a couple that are not adjustable when installed!

To heck with how to fix it, I would be concerned with why the axle is shifted 2 inches to one side without messing with the suspension... Was the axle ushed to one side before the tires were installed or did this all come about after tire installationWhere did you get the wheels and tires from? Is there a possibility that one rim has a different offset than the other?

I thought that the snow plow prep package set the front axle to the drivers side a bit. Wondering if the upgraded icon adj trac bar will make it fully centered or just back to where it initially was?

you may have a trac bar issue

you may also just need a drop track bar bracket instead of a high dollar adjustable arm

but I can't see just a snowplow coil lifting it enough to have the trac bar pull it that far to the driver side?

and EDIT I just read you didn't add the coils it is factory .. I would definitely snoop around for the cause

precision metal FAB has a decent price for an adjustable if you wind up needing one

Never use a drop bracket without a equal droped Pitman arm..just gets the angles wrong which leads to bump steer.

I wouldn't use any track bar that uses Rod ends..thats for off road-racing and will need constant checking, plus will transmit noise.
