I have a 95 s14 and I put my new wheels on and I noticed that my passenger side tire sticks out about half an inch more then the driver side. I thought.."maybe its my alignment since I just converted to five lug..So I took it to the alignment shop and the alignment shop did the alignment and said that my passenger side had a -2 camber and that I need the if I buy those adjustable arms then I could adjust for the camber. I bought the arms installed them and ran back to the alignment shop the adjusted the camber and I noticed that the passenger side is still sticking out! when I reverse I hear a thump noise like my sub frame bushings are bad. But could sub frame bushings cause the subframe to be permeantly shifted to the passenger side more?

Here is what I have back there:

Nismo R-tune coilovers
Z32 Na differential
j30 halfshafts
rear tow and camber adjustable arms
Z32 rear hubs.

has anyone had this type of problem?

Are you certain the wheel offset is the same? Not just what the stickers say but the actual measurement.

yea the wheel offset is 20 18x9.5 on both sides I switched the wheels to see if it was the offset and it was the same problem.

they said everything is ok but the SAI is off and that could be a bent spindle but he wasn't sure? He asked if I had hit anything and I told him the truth that I hadn't.

Wizdom240's rear was like yours. It turned out to be the subframe was bent. He kissed a curb when the tires broke loose. We had to swap out subframes. This fixed the problem.

Are you the original owner, and it's never been driven by anyone else, ever? If not, someone curbed it.

Except mine wasn't as noticeable. You might want to take a close look at your subframe for stress cracks.
