      It would be extremely unlikely that both struts would be bent the same way even if they were bent. I agree that something is bent but I don't think it's the struts. Either way I would not drive that car until it is sorted. It's crazy that amount of positive camber is even occurring.

      yes but what if he put that wierd piece in there thats not suppose to be there then rammed that top nut on and removed the jack. they could of bent from the weight of the car if they were not seated right in the 1st place and placed in on a angle like that. they are racelands after all, what else can it be. woudnt hurt to get some pics up with the wheel off. had to get in on all this

      I just got finished doing a suspension rebuild today, so it's all fresh in my mind...I can't imagine what is causing that.

      It looks like the top it pushed out, so I'm thinking maybe the lower control arm ball joint isn't connected, or the strut isn't inserted all the way into the spindle (?). Tie rod being too long might cause that too, but I'm not sure.

      Make sure your wheel is actually bolted on correctly, too

      The weight of the car would not bend those struts. There is something else going on.
