When I bought my 14 TrakPak and before I lowered it the rear end was not centered neither were the other other 4 Mustangs I helped lower. Mine was basis by 3/8" on the drivers side...........it would be interesting to see how many Mustang owners have measured their's and how many are not centered from the factory.
I agree that for a street car having a perfectly centered axle is not going to make much difference.......

They are ALL not centred, based upon my observation. It doesn't really matter, as long as the thrust lines are parallel, which they are in most cases.

Ahhh I see. Could've been just dumb luck. Kind of like the Ngauge I just received that's a bit chewed up...😡

On a 2014 GT, does anybody know if it's possible to remove the stock DS and install a 3.5" DS without removing the factory mid-pipes? It looks like you could maybe slide it out from the rear.

I only ask because it's kind of a pain to re-align the tips perfectly again after removing the mid-pipes. But i'd really like to upgrade to a carbon fiber DS at the same time.

Yeah, and do you want it centered at stock height with stock (softer) springs or do you want it centered when power is applied and the car squats? Once you lower with stiffer springs, there should be less movement and therefor (seemingly) more important to be centered. Yes?
