    Question gap between wheel/quarterpanel larger on one side

    does anyone else have this problem? All stock right now so no drop or anything touched yet. The passengers side has more distance from tire to quater lip. Around a good 3/4 to 1 inch. I just purchased the truck (`99 blazer, 4x4, 69,000, real clean) Hope she wasn`t plastered in the side. It doesn`t seem to have any body repair to the point of shifting a axle over. Just wondering if this was common alone with the lean. Both my last two leases leaned. A 1999 and a 2002. Now I finally bought one so I can modify it instead of just the ussual bolt-on crap everyone else has.

    I`m sorry, I wasn`t clear in my ?. I was refering to side to side, not hieght. let`s say I was tucking my rims , one side would hit the quater the other would tuck. Hope that explains my problem better.

    IMO the "chevy lean" is caused from the extra weight of the gas tank on the drivers side plus the driver always being over there too.

    nah its not.. its just how the truck sits.. im SURE its not cuz of the gas lol cuz im always at 1/4 or less..

    lilbushhead.. i mis-understood your question.. take it to an alignment shop and let them check it out .. it could have been hit and pushed the rear over a little bit you never know

    How do you explain it on blazers where the tank is centered in the rear?
    this is a test of the sig

    For some reason on my first gen I had a centering problem. Mine wasn't too bad. 1/4" I'm linking mine so it'll be all centred anyways.

    2nd gen 2dr blazer has the tank in the back. 4 dr's have it in the side. but thats not the case.

    i would say the truck could have been hit on the side. maybe swayed the rear frame over. check out the bushing on the leaf springs and see if any look screwed up.

    on my truck it was very noticable. I had the drop spindels on and I put brand new beltech 2" springs in and it was like 3/4" higher on one side. So I cut a little tiny bit off the spring and it pretty much sits nice an even now.

    satisfied me anyways.
