Rear end out of line?

I just had an alignment done at a local shop. The rear end toe is -.47 on the left rear and -.56 on the right. They said they would expect the truck to pull badly. I havent really noticed anything. Anybody have any ideas? We did just install a wolf rack, new shocks and 1.5 spacers....

Based on my limited experience of seeing solid axle rovers on four wheel allignment racks, that seems about normal to me.

Yeah I agree. You can just about do an alignment with a tape measure as the only adjustment is to toe on the front axle. If it doesn't pull or wear the tires badly then just drive it.

Thanks guys. I think we fixed it. Cranked down on the rear arm bolt and everthing measured up even. We'll see I guess. I appreciate the info.

We measured from front center wheel to rear center wheel on both sides. Before we did anything, there was a 3/4 inch difference I think. After we tightened the arm bolt, both sides measured exactly the same. Since I just had the front end lined up, I figured they would be the same now.
