    I have an 1986 k10 with 350 ....my engine is sitting sideways. Both Engine Mounts have been replaced. We did do transfer case drop where you just relocate factor spacers. Anybody have any idear why engine a little sideways.... its looks maybe 1/4 inch sideways maybe tad more. If anybody has seen this tell me what you think.

    Bent frame, body mounts worn shifting body, etc. It could be 1 or all of the reasons adding together.
