when i had my old zq8s i had measured from sidewall to leaf on both sides noticed that the pass side stuck in more and driver side stuck out more.

the pass side is 4.6
drivers side is 4.4

usually 4.5 bs does the trick.

That is minute (my-noot)

My driver side rear tire is about a 1/4" more outboard then my pass side rear tire. It's noticeable looking at the truck from the rear.

1/4" spacer on one side? damn, thats kind of retarded though.

Cool look, did you have any rub problems? Also on the different spacing from one side to the other, I have seen differences in backspace on some wheels, especially aftermarket ralleys, they sometimes are off when they true them up before welding, one company I called said he could not get closer than 1/4 on my backspace measurement! The set I have now varies 1/8 to 1/16 between wheels.

no problems at all. pass side is fine drivers side i do think they did weld wrong because its closer to a 5 inch bs instead of 4.6. i have a little spacer ill put in there and im sure will even it out

Back space not even

Why don't you just loosen the u bolts and move the rear around
to get it square to the frame? It will move some on the locating
pins. get it stright front to back & side to side.GM doesn't align
the rears, if you check it its prob off a few deg. mine was off 6.
so i recentered it. Put it on an alignment rack to find out how
much its off.
