Default totally amazing!!!

you are obviously curious about what is so toally amazing. well let me explain. i explained the problems with my front suspension last saturday. to re cap- the front left suspension has gone up by half an inch. it has had some new parts, all were correct and fitted correctly. it has had two new shocks in the back. however no one can give me a logical diagnosis. today i decided to get out my tape measure and discovered that the front left is up by 15mm. not only that, but the wheel also appears to be 10mm more forward than the right hand side wheel using the moulding on the wing as the fixed point. i can't measure it but i am convinced that the wheel seems to be more cambered than the right side. it's fairly obvious to see when you know to look for it. what's amazing about that. well....nothing but i bet you would have overlooked this message if it was entitled "dull suspension problem". however it does shed new light on the problem and leads me to a more simple question- what can bend in the suspension that would lead to the wheel being so far out of line.( please forgive the lay man's terms)

A bent tie rod, or any bent control arm.
Go to a reputable shop (read Euro shop) for an alignment and you will find out whats up.
