Tweaked rear axle!
Had a bad shake and went to get it aligned again then they told me my rear axle is off, new to the Jeepin community and was wondering if anyone knew how I could set it back to where it's supposed to be. I'd rather do the work myself cause well I'm a college student and it seems like everyone wants an arm and a leg to work on a wrangler around here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Off how left and right or front to back ?

Check the Control arms and track bar

front to back the left is a little bit more forward than the right side of the axle putting a strain on the drive shaft

Do you have adjustable control arms?

no if i order a pair will that do the trick it's less than an inch that its off its -.19 on one side and .26 on the other

That's a bad bushing or a bent arm . And if they are trying to give you a four wheel alignment they are ripping you off Nothing moves on the back of the Jeep Unless you have adjustable control arms . You have four total in the rear Two uppers and two lowers

k appreciate it i'll probably just buy adjustables when I do my next lift cause I'm not really liking the zone lift and want something with the bent arms to have a little more flex
