The front wheels doesn't seem right to me


Recommended Posts

Last week I noticed something with front wheels. The left and right wheels doesn't look at the same position. Here are the pics

You notice that the right wheel is more inside than the left one. Is this normal? Is the body off the frame a little? Please help

Thanks, Adam

your first picture the tape measure isnt even straight.

You can take the wheels off and see if theres an adapter or spacer behind it. Other than that its probably just perspective. Or maybe a different offset wheel was used.

Should I worry about this?

strange. Trying to figure out if someone used wrong rotors or wrong hub assembly or something. Maybe take your tape measure and run it from the subframe out to the rotor on both sides and see what both sides measure.

Have someone drive the car and follow it, see if its tracking right, it may be dog tracking, maybe the carriage has moved

Looks like it...biggrin.gif

If it did move Jim, don't you think that the steering shaft connection could be binding,

how is the steering wheel, does it return to center on turns?
