This is not unusual, like Ed said it probably came that way.
You may be able to move the body over slightly on the frame; if you haven't done the body bushing mod this might be a good time.
I have big hands and my 3 fingers measure 2.5"
I don't know how fat your fingers are, but it sounds like you have 2" clearance on one side and 1/2" on the other.
It does almost sound like a curb incident, during a drifting demo in the past.
If so, new control arms and bushings could help,
That is more than the typical misfit.
I'm guessing the max you could get from moving the body would be 1/2", that could get you to
1" and 1.5"
