Bought used one and have a Q

Hi,

I'm new here and just got a used 2012 prowler 1000.
I just notice something wrong with the rear tire (driver side) see pics below...
I will try to take the tire off later on to see what's going on, but I just decided to share it with you so If anybody experience the same thing.

Edit: I test drive it and there is no shaking.

welcome to the house ..

pic angle or moved housing ? .. looks like the side to side is different too

might also check to be sure axle hasn't pulled out from the center section. some have had issues there. it a push pull type collar that if not properly seated will pull back out [usually easily fixed by reseating it]

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Garage
Could it be a bad shock causing that side to sag?

It was just a quick look (no time) I removed the tire to see if there is any visiable damage but everything looks normal
I noticed 2" spacer, could this be a problem?
I will try to remove both tires today..

Is there a spacer on both sides? Maybe only one side has the spacer, and that is why the one side sticks out a lot further.
