Rear diff on 1st gen. appears to be shifted

I recently installed new tires on my 1st gen. pre-runnere and notice the rear diff appears to be shifted, I'm hoping this is an easy fix.

Looks more like an axle alignment issue...

Check your leaf spring u-bolts, shackle bolts, and bushings. Make sure everything is in place, nothing's bent/cracked.

looks like you might have sheared the center pin..pretty common for trail trucks if you beat em..

pretty uncommon for mild trail trucks/street drivers..

i'd check center pin if it's still there and in the perch..

Thanks for the input, I took a look under there today, didn't see anything cracked or broken. I'm gonna run it over to a suspension shop tomorrow and have them check it out
