    Just installed my new 33 TrXus M/T.
    I noticed the front right wheel looks like its sitting back in the well. I did a rough measurement of the distance from the front to the rear wheel on both sides.
    The right measures around 1/2" shorter meaning the axle is not straight. The swaybar is connected so dont know how axle can be twisted unless frame is offset, but it looks like the rear is straight and with the distances different on both sides, do dont think its the frame.

    Need to get it aligned, is this something they can fix ??
    Any ideas how or why the axle can be offset ??

    mine was the sameway after I ran over a car at 20 mph. Yes the right front tire hit and went over the cars hood. My dad and i used a port-a-power and bent it back the best we could. It actually is almost perfect. Can't say why yours is like that.
