Rear wheel position
Okay with my rear shackle flip I was required to relocate the axle a bit, I painstakingly centered it at ride height and checked at every degree of stuffing the wheel I could to make sure the tire would never contact the body (using dirt in the bed and a forklift to compress each side.
So my result was a perfectly centered rear wheel in the wheel well opening. But I keep seeing other trucks with the rear wheel slightly forward. I don't have any straight side shots of my truck from before the work to know if mine was, but it's bugging me.
My axle at ride height is dead center of the bump stops of the frame, and my wheels are nicely center in the wheel well. So from factory, are the rear wheels on these trucks pushed forward a hair?.
