passanger side rear spring

So i was looking under my tj today and noticed that the housing the top of the spring rests in was only about 1/4 inch from my tire. I looked on the drivers side and there is a ton of space....
Got a little worried but figured i should ask here before getting scared that something is wrong.

I would take a pic but its -8 degrees out and im not as fat as i used to be....lol

Nothing is wrong. When you install a supension lift, the trackbar that bolts between the passenger-side frame and driver's side of the axle pulls the axle over towards the passenger side. Installing an aftermarket adjustable length trackbar adjusted to be a little longer than the OE trackbar would re-center the axle.

when you get a real lift kit, it will come with a bracket that you can move a bit to center your axle.

track bar. You have stock rims? That happened to me when I had the BB and 32's on stock rims. Never caused any problems.
