Both front wheels leaning to the drivers side at the top \ \ king pins and everything else seem fine that i can see.. would axle and housing bent cause this?
Thanks

I reckon an experienced 4wd wheel alignment guy would diagnose that in 5 minutes.

looks like the king pinss have been installed wrong ? otherwise there is no way they should be like that..check them to see if they have colapsed.. lift the front axle and push pull top and botton to see if there is any movement..

Thr drivers side looks normal, but the passenger side is the one I would be worried about. It could just be a bent housing.

Yeah man, using a straifght edge and good eyesight the drivers side is just as bad, could anyone help me in the way of finding a new housing?
