Boy I sure wish i was more clear on my initial measurments. I took my measurements horizontally from tire to body.
O-->body 5" on one side and 7" on the other it's cock eyed i guess
sorry about that
Thanks. The easiest way for me to explain is to see the drivers side tire back a little more than passeneger side can be normal. There is an alignment adjustment called "caster" caster is sort of ho far the drivers tire sits "back". this is needed due to the crown in the road. meaning the center of most all roads is higher. To keep the vehicle from pulling to one side due to crown in road, the drivers side tire is set back some. this is caster. It is adjustable via alignment machine. if the truck drives fairly straight, the caster is most likley ok and what you see is normal. even the fender could be back a little. now, the crab walk. that is usually caused in the rear. Something is not sitting straight with rear axle and springs. You should be taking the same measurements for the rear. there is not much in the front that could move or go bad to shift things like you see. the rear it can. If the truck steers ok and the rear differential is cocked a bit, that needs to be inpsected on a lift to see what shifted. if the front was out by 2 inches, the truck would pull to one side real bad
