    f-body offset wheels and tilt (extremely minor)

    Anyone notice that the rear of the F-bodies have slightly offset wheels (mostly rear), my wheels seem to be shifted towards one side as if the axle wasnt put in directly behind the tranny. also is anyone elses car slightly uneven, if i get behind the car and look straight on level ground, the drivers side sits slightly lower- has anyone bothered to fix it, i figured it just let it be, it aint broke, so why fix it- though ive always tried for perfection

    Actually most are about 1/2' higher on the drivers side so that they sit even with the driver's weight. Measure from the ground to the wheel well on center of r the wheel and see what you get.

    oh ok thanks, but what about the rear wheels? if i stand behind the car evenly between the sides, the wheels seem to be shifted to the right (maybe left i cant remember) so that more of the wheel is exposed on one side than the other, again this is so minor it shouldnt make a tad of a difference but im curious

    Yes, and if the car is lowered without an adjustable panhard bar it will be worse. Get an adjustable or if you have one adjust it to center the rear axle.

    Ya All these cars are biased toward the driver side. I used an Adj Panhard bar to center the rearend. Another thing to check is your rear springs, over the corse of time they can twist. The botom spring ends should point towards the front of the car.
