Re: rear axle off center

I think that your rear end is pushed over. I had a similar issue just after buying my f350. Got hit passenger side, square in the rear tire. Had it towed to local dealer for repair. A week later when i picked it up it drove fine for a few weeks. Then i was pulling a good load and i had a dog track issue. Come to find out my rear diff pivoted of centerline from the accident. It took the dealer 4 trips back to them to get it squared back up. Good luck! Hope your insurance guy is great to deal with, mine wasn't!
