so I have this problem with steering

sorry been gone for awhile been working like a dog for my lude. Anyway I hit a ditch pretty hard, so now car pulls to the right. Went in to get alignment, but they said they cant fix it. They told me wheel is moved lightly back, and car has no adjustable camber. What do you guys think I can do? I really dont want to take it to body shop for frame pull, if frame is fine just wheel is off...someone suggested that to me. oh yeah here is a quick picture of new paint

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: so I have this problem with steering

You could have bent your lower control arm. My friend ran up on a curb in his SpecV Sentra and bent his back to where his wheel was rubbing against the fender by the door.

Get it jacked up and compare both sides of the suspension, with the side you didn't run into the ditch with as your guide, and note the differences, if there are any. It might not be your problem, but it's definitely a start.

Re: so I have this problem with steering

How fast were you going?


I slid into a curb going around 10-15mph, turned out I bent upper and lower control arms, outer tie rod, and radius rod.

Drifting?! That doesn't seem that fast but enough to mess that much up I see.

Was your car in any previous accident? Because often times caster would be different on one side and would cause minor steering to either the right or left but it wouldn't be a big deal. Obviously it's something worse. Like mentioned look under and investigate holmes.
