hey guys, this happened before i got the car so i dont know when or how bad the crash was, looks like shes been hit and only panel damage has been repaired,

ive replaced the controller arm but it did nothing

does the controller arm bolt to the Kframe or directly to the chassis???

is it possible ive got a bent k frame or a bent chassis

the drive line of the car is pretty good pulls to the left a little (where the impact was)

the wheel dosnt sit flush, it sits in around 2-3"

gonna take it to a shop and get it checked out
its lookin kinda funyn cuz i put my kit on and its more noticable now

thought id post some pics of it aswell maybe someone can see something

it does look to be in. The wheel alignment place should have seen anything damaged/bent. They also should have realised that the wheel is sitting in the wrong spot cause they should measure the distance between the wheels.

My 91 v8 sedan hit a gutter and pushed the front strut back 25mm (pickup at the wheel alignment place printout) They bashed the top of the tower down to fix it. Still out a bit but drives straight.

BUT they gave me the printout!

I had to move the diff over 10mm as well, then back to the wheel alignment place.

Was told I needed a new K frame but dont want to spend so much when it drives ok and does not scrub tyres. (215/65 firestones)

The K frame might have moved. The mounting holes in the K frame are slightly larger than the bolts so the bolts can be loosened to move the K frame. If you find a decent wheel alignment place they should be able to straighten it up for you.
