    you may have actually bent the frame/unitbody. does it hop or pull when you drive?

    I already tried replacing the control arm, it dosent hop or anything, but it does 'pull' which i think is because the drivers side wheel sits incorrectly (it points to the left when the other wheel is straight

    right. drive it to sears, get a free estimate, they will tell you exactly what is toast, then fix it yourself.

    got an alignment, all the wheels point straight and id drives straight, but it sits low in that corner, and the wheel is further back than it should be, any ideas on what i could ook at, sears didnt seem to see anything, so I dunno

    in one of your pics the shock looks like it's bent, but it could be just the pic itself.
