    Off center?!?!?

    Hey I'm also wondering if anybody else has a problem with they're rear axle being off center? Mine seems to be more to the passenger side of the body. What could be some of the causes/corrections I could look at? This is on my high mileage 98 transom slp

    An adjustable pan hard rod will fix this. Is the car lowered? The lower the car gets the more the stock pan hard rod kicks the rear outta whack. An adjustable one basically shortens the rod which pulls the rear back into place.

    Generally (if I recall which side) the axle favors the driver side..
    I would check to see if the factory panhard bar is tight @ both ends with no play..
    I also agree an after market adjustable will correct the issue..
    Just be sure that's what it is.. Look everything over, under the rear suspension..
    Sometimes lesser tires will have slight deffects and can cause things to look out of alignment as well..
    Let us know what you find.. good luck!

    Typical for these cars, get an adjustable panhard to fix it.

    After you lower it, you will need to adjust the rear again to re-center it.
