Rear axle question.

How is the rear axle supposed to stay centered on the springs? Mine is shifted to the right slightly and the left tire is rubbing on the spring.

Rear track bar. Do you have it in the stock location or do you have the bracket for lifted jeeps?

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

I don't know what the stock or modified would look like. i've never seen the underside of a wrangler before i got this one. Pics might help if they're available.

When you lift the Jeep and you still have the stock track bar teh axle will move a bit to the passenger side. depending on the backspacing the tire will rub on the upper spring perch or not.

With 2-3" of tift you can fix that with a rear track bar bracket. With more lift you need an adjustable trackbar.

OK minor miscommunication between my dad and me. The axle is shifted towards the driver side, not the passenger. The right side tire is rubbing against the passenger spring . i was trying to watch 'House' and listen to him at the same time.

The rear axle is shifted to the drivers side?
Do you have a pic of the Jeep?
I don´t think that the stock springs will sag that much that the axle shifts to the left.
Perhaps you have a bent track bar?
