That's a really narrowed rear axle with skinnies on it if you look at all the pics further down the page.

Look at the top pic. and see the coil-overs and the ring gear hump is on the 9 in.It looks like its too much to the drivers side or am I wrong.

Sure looks off center to me. The perspective is pretty good to judge by, and the pass side coilover has more space around it than the drivers side.

Has to be.

In order to center the pinion gear in the car, the ring gear and hence the "hump" has to be off to the driver's side a bit, as the driveshaft tunnel is in the very center of these cars.

It's correct for driveshaft clearance.

Could be just the angle that the pic was taken from....Looks to me like the photographer was standing a little to the right of center

yup, just centered the pumpkin for the A. Lots of floor clearance. But in a trifive you gotta think about the tunnel.......
