Rear end off center

After installing a 2.5 inch Skyjacker coil lift, my rear end seems to be approx 3/8 inch off center from the driver's side. Rear tire on the driver's side is approx. 3/4 inch from touching the top of the coil. Rear tire on the passenger side is approx. 1 1/2 inches from the top of the coil spring. Will an adjustable trac bar be the fix for this? Also, after centering, if I'm ending up with approx. 1 1/18 inch clearance between the closest clearance point on the inside and now running 235x15 tires, will I have a problem running 32x11.50's? (The 2,5 inch lift changed the height by at least 3 inches upward! .. Thanks for any info. before I purchase tires. I may even want to go to 33's ?

yeah you either need an adjustable rear trackbar or a trackbar relocation bracket. That will take care of your problem!!

What about the larger tire size. 32x11.50 or maybe 33's. Do you think I will have enough inside clearance without wheel spacers?

Not on factory wheels. It's not due to the amount of lift, but to the amount of wheel backspacing. The backspacing of stock wheels is greater which in turn sets the tire more inward on the vehicle. On a stock canyon for example the BS is 5. On most aftermarket people run 3.75, some even 3.25. This sticks the tires out 1.25 inches further on each side. I run the stock canyons with 1.25 wheel spacers to give me the clearance that I need to not rub when turning. With 2.5 inches of lift you should easily clear 32's as far as height is concerned.

I have 33x12.50R15 on stock wheels they do rub on the rear when wheeling.
