Default Re: Screwed up camber after rod bearing diy

looks like the strut mount is probably rotated. If oem I think the marks should point to the front of the car.

On the stock one there is also a hole for the pin, which only lines up one way.

Yep, the allignment pin is still in there.

Getting an allignment in friday. Noticed on the last drive my toe is also off.

Still wondering why I have different camber in those front wheels though...

Per what Pilot noted, you sure you didn't just notice it while doing this job, and didn't already have the problem before?
