    Default wheel alignment

    Hi,

    My front offside wheel doesn't look right. It's had the wishbone changed and strut replaced but still doesn't look right.

    Camber looks miles out, have you had a full alignment done on it?

    Aye, it looks like someone's set the camber to maximum the wrong way or put the wrong length track rod ends on it or something

    The car clipped a traffic island and bent the wishbone. The wishbone, wheel, strut have been replaced, and a full alignment was attempted but they said that it's adjusted as far it can be done.
    I can't see any ceases or stretch marks in the body or mounts.
    It's not being driven at the moment, until it gets sorted.
    On the n/s I can bearly get my hand behind the strut and the body, but on the o/s i can easily put my hand between it, it this normal if not which side is ok?

    Thanks in advance
    Matt
