the more your rearend is offset to the left the tighter the car will be, you can just get different offset wheels if you want it back where it was before

no it was a wall thing we replaced trailing arms and shocks it moved back a little so the frame must be a little off been this way most of the season just wondered about the bite thing cause when we scaled it they said i needed 50lbs more on the left rear and i said no way its already tight enough.if i took the 2 off and put a 4 on it should loosen up correct ?

Check your rear steer also, right side wheel base vs left side wheel base. Quite often this type of missalignment from the wall will also create a difference in wheel bases.
