Ok ive put the wheels on and the drivers side wheel is still cambering out top about 20 degrees, ive replaced lower arm and cv joint, Checked for visable chassis damage now im thinking its coil overs needed to replace a bent suspension leg :(

springs & dampers?

probably easier to have just replaced the dampers as you get the new ones rather than building the ornament you have

about an hour to fit them roughly,about 4 to fit them properly :p

that's because the car already had been perched up with no suspension on some garden furniture 1st :)

surprised it took an hour to chuck them on... it's not like it's on the ground yet?

right here goes put the lower arm on the car and ball joint, put the wheel on and this is the angle im faced with, the toe on the wheel is where ive turned the steering its the massive camber now, i've been told i need a new hub, as the casting may be bent

Passenger side Normal

did you bend the hub?? i know its like cast iron but still , have you tried pushing in the the top of the hub closer to the coilover leg and pulling out the bottom one ?? that should level it out
