Tire Stick Out 1" or More Farther on Driver's Side

Hi Guys,

Thanks a million for helping. Couple days ago I noticed the tires on driver's side stick out more than the passenger side. A jeeper said the rear track bar caused the problem and I just want to confirm. Or, what's the reason and cure? Here're some specs, facts, and photos below:

a. 1993 YJ, mostly city use.
b. Tires are 265-75 R15 (close to 31x10)
c. No lift (just yet!!!)
d. Body mount brushing.
e. On driver's side, the rear tire sticks out about 1" - 1.25" more than the passenger side.
f. On driver's side, the front tire sticks out about 0.75" more than the other side.

Thank you!
Ben

Have a frame shop check it. It may be twisted a little from a previous accident.

if it was a tj I would say track bar issue... but with the YJ the leaf pack usually locates the axle left and right.. are any of the spring hangers bent.. How do the track bars look?

Are you sure it's not your fenders, or the leafs flexing at all? Measure from the outside of the wheel to the frame, not the wheel to the fender.

Hi Guys,

The jeep had never been in an accident. The springs, track bars are in thier right positions and everything looks straight. However, when I do the measurement as Xpress instrusted, I have these following interest results:

Rear Tires:
Driver side tire - 13.5" from outside wheel to frame
Passengar side tire - 13" from outside wheel to frame

Thanks Guys!
Ben

did you take the trac bars off already?
you better fix that rust or your going to lose that cool guy renegade


1/2 inch is not bad. unhook the trac bars from one side of each bar and then drive around the block and remeasure it

Good eyes Busemans that you noticed the rust. It's on my to-do list. For a 93, it ain't that bad. I'll unhook the trac bars and update you guys with the result. Just a thought, would it be possible the worn rubber body mount brushing push the body lean to the driver side?

Could be the camera tilted when I took the photo so it didn't look straight up or a little flat may be....

The more lift you add the more the track bar pulls it to one side!

XtremeJeep, will check the alignment and post the result.

Nubby55, the jeep has stock suspension, it still pulls out more tires on the driver's side. But it has 31", does it has the same theoy as lifted?
