The car was hit in the right front side and the wheel bent inward. I need to know the part name and procedure to replace it. It is the shock or spring that the brake rotor mounts to and it is bent or broke

You are describing the steering knuckle.. If I were you I would go to my local wreckers and get a complete strut and knuckle assembly and replace both pieces.. One rarely is bent without the other being effected..

Rear driver side wheel is leaning inward on 2001 Toyota Camry..i think it's shock but idk...what is another possible issue and is it easy to fix?


You need a front end alignment if the steering parts are not worn. But based on the fact that the condition is so noticeable I think you have a seriously worn or broken part in the front end that needs replacement. An alignment afterwards.

I hit something very hard with my right front rim. the tire now rubs the wheel well. What have I bent =, dammaged ect.?


Depends on what you mean by rubbing on wheel well?

if the wheel is bent inwards, so when the steering is set straight ahead, the damaged wheel is angled inwards or outwards then the tracking arm is bent!

if the wheel well has dropped on the damaged side then it probably is the suspension!

Got hit from the left side but theright frontwheel was the one tilted towards insideof the wheel well can it be the stable lizers


it can be any part of the front suspension or brake system including drive train damage jack up right side and with wheel still on place hands at top and bottom of wheel and push and pull in and out if movement usually a ball joint but ball joints dont give off a grinding noise ===now grab tire at the 9 and 3 position front and back -push and pull if loose possible tie rod damage or steering component damaged this also doesnt give off a grinding noise unless bent into a turning part =====turn wheel and listen and look at cv axle and around brake area if noise remove wheel and now inspect brake caliper ,brakes ,hub and axle for noise these components can give you your grinding noise repair or replace damaged components the other tests performed were for possible damaged parts since wheel was bent inward

My daughter ran her 98 Civic EX into a ditch flattening the front tire on the right front and bending the entire rear left wheel inward. I replaced to lower control arm in the rear, but now the car has...


not a lower control arm problem
the wheel alignment guy is not lying

the front wheel drive only has tow in toe out adjustments
no camber adjustments
the frame is pre stressed at manufacture set at zero

if the shock tower frame on any front wheel drive gets bent up.... even a little bit
the camber will be way out
even front ride height may be way out on each front side

too dangerous to drive
the car is a write off


only good to sell for parts or buy the same model and swap over its good bits

if you like the car a lot
to correct the damage needs the front chassis stripped back to frame and put on a frame straightenerd47f961b-7315-43ab-a146-e3069f36ad5f.jpg

Front right wheel is leaning inward. vibration when on highway


You have a major amount of positive camber. You car must be undrivable. Did you hit something? You need to get it into a suspension centre and find out what has been bent.

TOP OF RIGHT SIDE FRT. WHEEL ANGLES INWARD AFTER HIT POTHOLE IN ROAD ALSO BENT INNER TIE ROD REPLACE IT DID NOT SEE ANYTHING LOOSE OR BENT


get a front end alignment IMMEDIATELY. Something is not correct and could break off while driving. If a garage replaced the tie rod, make them align it as they should have done.
