Alfetta Front tire position
I noticed something after I got new tires as I was checking for clearance and such. The right front wheel sits further back than the left. Maybe ˝ cm to 1 cm. The car had been in an accident previously on that side of the car and there does remain some mild wrinkling of the inner fender well in between the shock mount and the front castor arm attachment point. The old tire was also unevenly worn on this side. The inside edge was worn out to the belts when the other tires were just plain worn out.
My question is, can an alignment using the upper castor arm to pull the wheel forward a bit be effective? Would an alignment shop know if he can fix such an issue with his adjustment or tell me the car has issues that need to go back to a body shop?
I’m pretty sure that the only portion that had changed its position is the mounting point of the upper arm. Everything behind the wrinkle seems intact. There is at least 2 cm of thread on each side of the adjuster nuts to play with.
I do not remember if an alignment was done after the accident.
