Re: bent drivers side front wheel assembly.
A diagram of what?
If your wheel is bent you have to replace the rim. I don't think there is anybody who straightens wheels anymore. If it's a factory wheel, you can pick one up at a salvage yard for a fraction of the price of a new one..

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.
If they are sealed bearings, you will need a press to get them out. If they are bolt in, just remove the brake pads/rotors, then the axle nut, then the bolts holding the wheel bearing in. Install in reverse order.
if it is scraping on the shock chances are that 1 the camber of your right front is way off this could be due to a damaged strut/shock/coil spring assembly are the allignment is way off. one of the first things you do is when you take it to a shop have them show you exactly what is wrong. don't allow them to tell you you need replacement of parts unless they give you a detailed answer and they show you why it needs replacing. On your vehicle you have front wheel drive so the suspension is as follows strut is responsible for keeping the wheels on the ground it also can be adjusted to keep the wheel tilted in or out on the top or bottom this is called camber. you have a coil spring that is intergrated with the shock this is called a strut there is a distinction between just a shock which has no coil spring. this spring keeps the body off the axle this is the only purpose it serves. tie rods are what are attached to your rack and pinion unit this is what steers the wheels. they adjust the wheels at the front or back of the wheel this is called toe in/out if you have wishbones upper and lower there also should be a stablizer bar between the 2 also known as a torsion bar. this is used to add stablization to the whole assembly. you have a front wheel drive vehicle and the axles are also called cv jointed axles thes e have no bearing on your wheel rubbing the strut because they are in a fixed position and cannot be adjusted. thr front rotor assembly does have a sealed bearing however unless you have a severe wobble your hub assembly is not the problem. if the wheel is rubbing the strut either the wheel is toed in to far due to an improper adjustment of the tie rod end or the camber is off due to a bent strut or poor allignment. my suggestion is to take it to a small independant shop and have them do the repair you will save money on parts and labor you will get a good job done and most important if they are a crediable shop they will not try to fleece your pofckets they will explain in detail what the problem is and how to fix it they will show you exactly what is to be done. please rate this thanks
