My van in the snow tends to wander and we think it's because the rear wheels are 4" closer to each other than the front wheels. are there any shim kits to put the rears 2" out from the rotors? Thanks: idunno:

What van do you drive where the rear wheels are 4" closer to each other than the fronts?

2500 T1N front track is 65.0", rear track is 64.8".
2500 NCV3 front track is 68.0", rear track is 68.2".
Must be an older non-US model.

Or maybe a 3500 masquerading as a 2500 with single rear wheels...:idunno:

Guys,
Comsigns has a 2005 Freightliner T1N 158" wb 2500.
So, < 1/4" narrower track in the rear.
Has the stock OEM 18 holes Sprinter 2500 5 lug wheels.
You can see the Sprinter with a search on "Building the Masta Splinta".

Unless you're using alloys on the fronts with steelies on the rears there should be no noticeable difference in wheel tracking.
I wonder if the van is not running straight/aligned from a lose rear axle/spring attachment, check the bolts?
