need serious help bad something is terribly wrong

i have a 99 prelude and on the frontend something is messed up really bad. both my front tires are rubbing and it looks like they have moved backward about 2 or three inches. i dont know what to do to fix it. but it also looks like the upper control arm is sliding off the bushing. any help please. i only have 16s on this car and i dont have any type of drop it is all stock suspension.

Re: need serious help bad something is terribly wrong

ye. sounds like your control arms are shot and also your ball joints .Also check the two torshion bars they could also be out of adjustment. The bars are connected to the lower control arm and front support bar . Hope this gives a idea. Later John.

torsion bars are in your trunk... you mean radius bars.

Re: need serious help bad something is terribly wrong

my left wheel is pushed back 2 inches as well, did you hit anything? if so your radiul bar/controll arm/ball joints could be jacked up....
