Have you measured the axle? Could it be your tires or rims?

My truck is the same way, the axle is 1/2" off. I did some measuring and the spring perch's are the same distance from the backing plate on each side. So this means it is either the leaf springs are twisted, the leaf spring mounting points are tweaked, or the frame it tweaked.

1/2" Total Difference means it is only off center by 1/4" really. As long as everything looks good and is tight; no cracks seen, I would not worry about it at all. Many vehicles have such errors. They are insignificant/normal.

Thanks for all the responses. I measured the axle and it does seem to be off, not the wheels and tires. It might be the leaf springs like desertruner said but the good thing is that I don’t see anything damaged. In a sense….good to hear that I’m not the only one with this issue.

Could it be a shackle problem?

If you corner one way harder than the other, it is possible you have worn your bushings into a natural lean one way or the other....also, Titan Blue is correct in that it is only shifted 1/4 inch if it measures 1/2 difference.

yeah that cornering theory sounds about right. i always turn right faster than left if i catch the light green and the right turns are always sharper

My rear axle is off exactly the same amount in the same direction if it makes you feel any better.
This thread hasn't been updated since 2011 so im thinking he got over it by selling his T.
Checking dates on threads is always a good idea :).....
