    has your car been in a smash?
    has the suspention taken a hit etc?

    YES the front wheels can be adjusted but not by allot on standard suspentions, its mopre so on the coilover kits m8

    EDIT: after re reading that question.. do you mean the gap between the wheel and arch is lower than the other side or do you mean the wheel sits like / or \

    sorry i mean the wheel sits like \ if u are standing at the front of the car. I hit a raised i drain a while ago that i think was the main cause for breaking power steering rack.

    have you checked the wishbone and suspention first?

    if the hit was hard enough to damage the rack then the wishbone should have taken the hit mostly..
