What specifically in the rear is not lining up when you have the front lined up? Is it at the drop offs? The tail light panel? The back edge of the wheelhouse? A picture or two might help quite a bit if you can manage some.

You don't really have much you can play with in the front, but all the sheet metal you replaced in the rear would effect how the rear lines up. If one or more of those pieces aren't meeting the rear of the quarter panel, you may have to do some surgery back there. BUT it all depends on where the quarter panel is not meeting up. In some cases it's just a little bit of creative clamping and wacking.

Two inces is a lot . Mine was a half at most. I did drill a few welds at the back to relieve the tension it poped up and looks good. Hope this helps.

When I did full quarters they were off everywhere. But every time I worked on the various problems it would get a little better. In the end I drilled out every spot weld by the drop off tail panel area and completely cut off the bottom inch in the front where the quarter meets the rocker. The quarter/rocker flange was actually causing most of my problems. I rewelded it on once I had the quarter in place.
