Budget boost, rear axle off center question

Quick question... the rear axle being off center by a half inch or so - is that an issue... or is it just cosmetic? (TF budget boost installed)

Install teras rear track bar bracket. Has multiple holes for varying lift heights. Will center your axle and bring back your roll center.

Do as they say, I did and it really did improve my ride along with the axle centering.

Is the axle being slightly off center an issue though?

My TF budget boost came with a rear track bar bracket. Mounted to the frame, not the axle. It's still a little off though. I guess I'll look into other bracket options. Thanks!

Yes... You end up crab walking and can really adversely affect your handling.

No, it is not a noticeable issue unless you a tall lift.

Agree, 3/8 or so at 2.5 is not going to affect much. Raising the vehicles roll center will.
