Car pull to the right.
Left spindel is back a good 1/2 ", axle is bent.
It appears left wheel doesn't have much camber.
Would the bent axle cause the pull or the lack of camber?
Is the kingpin centre line supposed to be 90 degrees to the axle centreline?
Thanx for any help.
There is a photo on the following tread that shows a how to check an axle to see if it is straight. Even though other things can cause a car to pull left or right, I think the fist thing to do is make sure that the axle is straight.
Yes thanx I see that ,but the Picture and instruction on the one from Stan is only partial, I can't make out the full picture.
Here is more info and a bunch of photos:
The spindle body gives the camber offset.
The front axle is to be straight. The bores of the axle yoke that hold the spindle body must be perpendicular to the axle and parallel to the holes in the axle for the spring perch.

That has answered all my questions. Sure appreciate the help.
Thanks to all and have a Merry Christmas.
