You may also want to use tire-to-body references for centering the axle. If one of your coils is bound/warped/twisted or slipped in its perch it may look closer to the tire than the other, even if the axle is centered properly.
Pull the tires and use the caliper mount to frame rail distance if you want super accurate measurements; tire/wheel/bearing/body differences can throw off something like "the outside tread lug to fender flare" distance.

|Jerry Bransford||Since you already have a rear track bar relocation bracket & adjustable track bar, it's clear the track bar length has simply not yet been set properly.|

That happens whenever a suspension lift is installed but it is easily fixable.
The reason is the track bar & how it positions the axle left/right. The track bar connects to the axle on the driver's side & to the frame on the passenger side.
Like the letter Z where the diagonal part is the track bar, the lower line is the axle, & the upper line being the frame. If you lift the top up from a suspension lift, the diagonal part (the track bar) will pull the axle to the side.
The fix is to install an adjustable length track bar that can be adjusted longer to compensate for the suspension lift, or to install a trackbar relocation bracket that moves the trackbar's driver's-side mount over a tad to compensate for the increased suspension lift height.

tire to body spacing?
Ok, so the issue I encountered today.. My back right tire is less than two inches away from my coil, whereas the back left is about 4 inches, its a very noticeable difference and I have no idea what is causing it, any ideas?
