question about 3rd gen spindles

i was just looking around under my 86 Camaro, and noticed that the steering arm on the driver's side is about 1" farther inboard than the one on the passenger side. the tie rod on the passenger side is about 1/4" away from the wheel weight, but there is a gap of over 1" on the driver's side. the car drives perfectly straight and nothing looks bent- both wheels appear to have the same amount of toe-in as you look down the side of the car..
is this normal?
both wheels are the same backspacing and diameter- i have 4 "rear" GTA wheels on the car. they are both the same distance from the strut.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Re: question about 3rd gen spindles

I've owned a third gen for 20 years and I never have noticed, I'd compare to a couple more to see, it doesn't sound right to me though.
