    maybe a dumb question???

    ok....I installed 315 35 17 ttm's, did the bfg and also a fender roll. the pass. rear is out to far and the drivers side rear is obliviously in to close. Before that i checked rear end and it was to the 1/16th from the rotor to the outside fender on both sides(plump bob). I do have an adj. pan bar but was wondering if this is normal. after i installed both tires it was off 7/16th's to the pass. side?????? offsets are i believe are 44mm.....???? did I check the rear end incorrectly???? btw running nitto extremes....

    Try re-adjusting your PHB is the only thing I can think of right now, got any pics?

    Agreed adjust your panhard bar..

    The rears on these tend to favor the passenger side from production..

    The panhard bar operates off a pivot point on the passenger side. Its movement is in a shallow arc as the car rides up and down on its suspension. It is possible that at least part of the difference is from jacking the car up and setting it back down. The suspension may not be at the exact same ride height as your first measurement. Bounce the rear end a bit to allow it to settle and then measure again.

    You can remove the bump stops and grind the mounting flange down a bit if you need additional clearance. I did this for our track wheels and tires on our car.

    already did bump stops and bfh to inside wheel well. If i run a plumb bob down from center of rear fender, and measure over to widest part of sidewall I have 3/16" that the fender is past the tire. Is this enough? I will be on stock suspension height. Also did fender roll.
