OK fella's;

1997 TJ with a Super 35 Kit in her rear. My RR wheel looks like it is leaning in?

When I jacked her up the wheel spins and there are no grinding noises. Spins freely as well.

Any ideas what would cause this? Could it be the inner race?

The axle tube does not look bent?

If the wheel spins true without wobble, neither the axleshaft nor its flange is bent. Perhaps your r-r spring has sagged causing the Jeep to tip toward the r-r tire which is creating an optical illusion. A sagging r-r spring is very common due to the engine torque direction.

I'd start small by making sure it's not the wheel that's bent. Try swapping tires around before pulling axle's. Also, TJ"s are prone to sagging springs on that corner. Post up a pic

I thank you gentlemen. It has started raining here in Tropical Cleveland, Ohio - so Jeep needs to wait.

Looks like I picked a great day to put my replacement soft top on too!

As always I appreciate the help from my fellow Jeepers!

I will update as soon as I can...
