wheel setback

has anyone ever fixed a wheel setback?
only 2 things causes this...
manufactured or collision
but im thinking its on collision side..
i hope she can be fixed
i would hate to hear that she ain't fixable and i have to junk her
some people said that's the worst case scenario...
i will take a picture tomorrow morning and upload it
i checked the spacing..
all 3 wheels fit 3 fingers both side from tire to wheel well
but my front right tire fit 2 fingers and 4 on the other side
which tells me it is set backwards...
i hope someone could give me an advice on how to fix this..
i love my prelude.. but she is giving me such a headache
my idle still aint fixed.. sigh

Re: wheel setback

Could just be something bent on the LCA or something down there. I'm sure it's fixable.

I've never heard of that site so i can't really say if it's worth it or not.



Check everything else first before jumping to buying a strut.
