Non Lifted 95 ZJ Axle not centered

Hey guys Im Tom. Just picked up a new to me 95 4.0!!! Excited to build it out. Currently working on the normal stuff.... tie rods, brakes, cosmetics. One thing I'm stumped on is why my front axle is off center. There is no lift on it so it's not that. She rides good, no wobble or anything. Any ideas, I tried searching but it's only about once the truck is lifted mines is stock. I know i can get an adjustable track bar but I will want to drill down what could cause it to be off.
Thanks,
Guys

This will probably get moved very soon since this is the ZJ section but I would check your control arms and mounts on the frame and axle for anything bent. Good luck with the "new" jeep!

Double check for any possible prior collision damage that wasn't fixed properly. It may require a little time on aframe rack. It doesn't mean it's junk. It just may have been something that was overlooked and easily fixed buy a professional shop.

Thanks guys and its off centered side to side so the drivers side wheel is further out the fender than the passenger side. (just as if it was lifted)
I was hoping it wasnt a frame issue.

Take pics of the front end. It could be a bent track bar, or the PO may have had a lift on there and halfassed removing it.

Hi, I have similar problems, 98 ZJ, after fitting new lower control arms, identical size, axle had moved back and had to ratchet strap it forward to get bolts in, now axle forward over an inch and prop now too short
