Body not centered on fame?
 
I have noticed on my 2012 express after I lowered the truck the driver side tire front sticks out about .75" further then the passenger side tire. (I think it was always like that and I could only notice after it was lowered)

I cant figure out his could be besides the body isnt centered on the frame.


Any suggestions on anything else to check?

How would I go about moving the body over? Is this something I should have the dealer do?

I'm sure if you look around you will find many trucks with the same problem. I've noticed body alignment issues with several trucks over the years.

I wouldn't put it past the manufacturer to have it off center but assuming the suspension is similar to the jeep world, raising or lowering the suspension also impacts the centering of the axles which is why we use adjustable track bars to move it back where it belongs.

The rear is centered with the panhard bar bracket.

Front is independent, shouldnt matter. I think?

Just drive it. Its probably like that for clearance.


If you think its in the frame. Measure from the center of your lower ball joint to the rear bracket for the rear end link. Do a length measurement front to rear and a side to side cross measurement. If its longer on any measurement it has frame issues.

Check the distance between the cab and front edge of the bed. Hope this helps. Its in millimeters. Notice its not centered in the bottom photo. :)
