    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.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    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
