Hellpppp please??? :(

So I had a car accident a while back and my rear right wheel seems to have more camber play than my left. I have a hunch that i busted my guide rod. The right wheel seems to be more tucked in and the left sits perfectly flush. Any inputs? Please i need some help or can you guys tell me what this might be?

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

rear camber is adjustable, so get it checked out at an alignment shop first, and see if they can adjust it back to spec.

really? I heard that the rear camber isn't adjustable and it was only able to if remove the alignment pin (NO clue what that is?)

That's on the front.

The rear has an eccentric bolt at the inboard lower control arm joint that is used to adjust rear camber. If anyone did any work on the rear suspension, and didn't pay attention to the orientation of that bolt when they removed and re-installed it, your camber will be off.

Ohhhhhhhhh thank you soooo much, i really needed clarification on that. I have been thinking about your advice and going to the local alignment shop and have them check it out, but for some reason the side that is cambered rubs and the other side doesn't? what do you suppose that is?

your saying the right tire is rubbing on the fender lip? If it was cambered in, it shouldn't rub since the top of the tire should be tucked in. Can you take a pic?
