Wheels Badly Out Of Line!!! Please Help

16 posts in this topic

Basically I hit a Kirb earlier pretty hard and my rear wheel is sitting in about 60mm in more than usual, what have I hit or bent?

Also when I'm going in a straight line my steering wheels squint?

Update: I've been to a mechanic and he recons it could be some sort if pin type thing bent, it. Sits behind the drum or he said worse case it would be a new axel which I would imagine it is as the wheel sits right in, without the 20mm spacers it's not even drivable as it just rubs the lining etc..he also reckons it's just the tracking on the front

If anyone has some more knowledge on this please let me know :)

You need to get someone to get the car up so they can inspect the underpinnings to see what has been damaged and fix them then get a proper full 4 wheel alignment done.

Your rear wheel damage will make the car behave oddly and you shouldn't drive it really as it could be unpredictable in the wet etc.

How did you manage to hit a kerb hard enough to bend something like that?

Possibly a bent stub axle have done this before, surprisingly easier than you mighnt think but 60mm does sound a bit excessive.
