is this normal? (pics inside)

got to looking at my truck this morning and noticed that the right rear tire sticks out more than the left. thought it might be just the way i was looking at it, but with closer inspection it is sticking out further. could my frame be twisted? or leaf springs bent? is there a fix for this? it doesn't affect the way it drives but i don't want it tearing anything up either. i took some comparison pics, the pics are from the same spot on the fender with the same angle on both sides. any suggestions or has anyone even seen anything like this before.

right side


left side


right side underneath


left side underneaath


thanks for the help guys.

Could even be caused a little by the C clip axle. All the things mentioned plus that could add up to it.

i have never seen that before but like others have said it may be caused by the bed being off centered or something like that

yeah, i hadn't thought of the bed being a little off centered. went back out and looked at it, the bed is shifted over to the left a little bit, it's only about a 1/2 inch off where it meets the cab. thanks for the inputs guys
