for sure will do, another question if my subframe is a lil tweaked would that be the reason of my camber being bent?

sure guy i will definately be contacting you......the reason why i asked if the subframe is tweaked is because i impacted the curb on the driver hand side at about 35 to 45 mph it was a pretty rough impact....

I wouls also say bent strut/shocks. I just recentky pu coilvers on my car 2 weeks ago. Before I did that my steerinf wheel was like 15 20* to the left. When I pit in the coilovers my steering wheel Went dead center. Its not to the left or right. Its right in the middle. Yea have james check it out. But changing my shocks fixed my steering alighnment problem.. if u have stock suspension. Now is a good time to upgrade since your gona have pull your suspension.

Sureguy wrote:Lorenzo your problem was caused by camber which is adjustable on your car at the bottom of the strut. The MK4 uses a slip-in strut so therefore there is no camber adjustment.
