Default Rear End Alignment with 4 Link Install

Looking for some advice from someone who has done this before hopefully. I've got all my bars lined up and everything square. The rear end is centered front to back in the wheel opening and side to side with the frame rails. However...with the wheels installed the drivers side wheel sticks is a good 1/2" closer to the fender well than the passengers. I'll say again, it's dead nuts on measuring from the frame rails. I'm measuring from the wheel mounting surface of the axle to the outside of the frame rail.

So what's best? My gut tells me that I should get it straight off of the frame rails and just flare the driver's arch to match the passengers, but is a 1/4" shift off center really going to jack up the tracking of the car? That's all it needs to be centered in the arches. I'm not going to be running a panhard rod, so I need to get it right now.

Background: 1966 220, P1800 rear, triangulated 4-link install.
