Riding Mower Deck Adjustment

Hi, I have a Husqvarna YTH150. The deck has become very uneven horizontally. The right side of the deck is rubbing against the right rear tire. I inspected the deck and replaced a couple broken parts but the issue still exists. I can't really find anything about this issue. Is there a way to adjust the deck horizontally? I can only find info to adjust the deck vertically (as if the mower was cutting the grass uneven). Thanks!

And what parts is it you replaced?
Something would have to be really obviously bent or broken to have the deck be that far off to hit the wheel.

Hi, thanks for your response. It was sway bar part #532138017 and sway bar bracket part #186689. Nothing else appears to be broken.

SSometimes the bracket that is welded to the top of the deck near the rear breaks loose and bends upwards, allowing the deck to move back on that side and hit the tire.

Thanks Cheese, I'll take a look... although not sure i wanna try to bend it back not knowing how strong the weld or the possibly bent metal is.

Usually if the rest of the deck is in good enough shape, I'll bend it back and weld it in place for a permanent repair.
