Right rear tire extends ˝ inch farther out than left after 2 inch lift.
I have a 2006 Wrangler X to which I added a 2” Skyjacker lift right after I drove it off the lot. I’m no heavy mechanic- this is my third Jeep but the first I have modified much- the lift appeared to go well, projected time was 6 hours per the directions and it took me 8 hours. During the lift I replaced the stock wheels with 32x11.50 Goodrich ATs on 15x8 Outlaw I’s, which extend the tires beyond the stock fender flare. When completed, I noticed that the right rear tire extends about ˝ inch farther out than the other tires. Given the heaviness of the transverse member connecting the frame to the rear end, I cannot figure out how this could have been caused by something I did during the lift. I never noticed it with the stock tires which don’t extend past the flares. I swapped with the spare and it showed the same thing, so its not the rims/tires. I measured distances-to-frame and there’s about ˝ inch difference between outer rear axle components and their respective side frame. The Jeep tracks fine on a straightway and the rear driveshaft doesn’t appear to have an angle on it. The bottom of the righthand coilspring does look like it’s a bit skewed outward. Any ideas? Do I just live with it? And did I violate every warranty in the book by lifting a brand new Jeep, which would prevent me from bringing it to the dealership?
