Adjsuting front clip

Well, I have been working on this for a while and I cannot seem to get it right. My front clip is a little off. When I say "off", I mean my passenger fender sits about two inches closer to my front bumper then the driver fender, and no...the fender is not bent.

Originally is was a bout 3 inches closer, and I was able to adjust it to get it a little closer.

Bugs the hell out of me. Any suggestion on this adjustment that worked for you?

your fender has to sit square to the tub...

your tub has to sit square to the frame...

if they are both square, and you are off by two inches on one side, no amount of adjusting is going to make it right.

are your fenders the same?

is your frame tweaked?

are your body mounts good?
