After I got in my car accident my suspension strut is bent & my driver wheel goes in & outward while I drive & continues when it rotates. I know my suspension strut is bent as well but im not sure what else is bent that rotates. I know its not my rim thanks very much if you can answer my question I have a lil daughter & I dont want to put her at risk in my car till I find out whats wrong ? Thank you
My driver wheel goes inward when the wheel rotes after I got in my car accident I know my suspension strut is bent but I know there’s something els with the wheel & it also eats the inside of my tire. So my wheel goes in & outward when I drive it & eats my tire up pretty fast.
