Location: ADELAIDE, KLEMZIG
SA, Australia

Hey everyone. My car was recently in a car accident where someone put me side ways into the kerb & totally stuffed da Front end suspension setup.
What was replaced.
-- Da whole K Frame
--Power steering rack and tie rod ends
-- Front right and left radius rods
--Front left stub axle
--Sway bar

And that was it everything else like shockers springs and my adjustable camber kits where perfectly fine.

When i got da car back from da crash shop dey did a wheel alignment but forgot to reset my adjustable camber kits.
So i took da car back to where i got the camber kits from so they could redo my wheel alignment and my adjustable camber kits. After dey did it, da car was bloody awesome, but now its stuffed again.

Now the Front passenger wheel has like Negative 2 degree camber and the Front drivers side is 0 camber like it should be, and da alignment is completely out of whack.
Why is it doing dis???????PLEASE HELP.......
cheers

out of interest you got new mags since the crash??? or same ones cause it could be buckled or even your wheel bearing have come loose since repair and id also suggest checking your upper and lower control arm bushes
