It's tough with things are off this far. I know in repairing collision damage there is NO WAY we would attempt to "align" out something this far, wouldn't even be tried, there is something seriously wrong with structure or components. That SAI is so far off I also have to wonder if it wasn't read wrong with the machine, that is REALLY a mile off. It says bent spindle when the SAI is that far off and the camber is the same, there is really nothing else it could be. However, never saw anything like it, 9 degrees, holy cow, we are usually talking a three or four max.

Unk, just going back to a real basic idea here, how far is the tire/wheel from the upper ball joint/control arm side to side. For that SAI to read as it does there would have to be a BIG difference side to side.
