As in the title, My car has been lowered, so there's a fair amount of camber, but on the right hand side the wheel looks to be toeing out a significant amount. I'll post pics later. Is there a reason for this. The car has not been damaged to my knowledge (I've been under there and cleaned everything and found no signs of repair.)

I know toe moves a fair amount as suspension compresses but unsure if it toes in or out.

Regards
Jordan

Been a lot of years since I had mine, but bad driving on my part led to me having large toe out. :D :oops:

The lower control arms at the rear don't require too big a tap on a gutter to have a little bend in them. Check very closely behind the wheel where the hub goes through the arm, check for any slight distortion of the metal, it may show that the rear arm is slightly bent causing your toe out problem. Just a thought. :thumbsup:
