    Default Corrolla Foothpath Hit & Alignment

    I recently purchased a 2010 model Corolla (2nd owner). In past car hit a foot path, the guy who sold the car never told me that (long story).

    Car was badly out of alignment, I got it aligned but after 2000 KM wheel bearing start sounding.
    I visited a mechanic and he recommended to change the left side wheel hub, after replacing wheel hub and another 2000 KM +/- wheel bearings are working fine.

    But its continue to pull lightly towards left and upon close inspection I had found that distance between front tyres and body is not equal on right and left side.

    Right side it is 4 inches from front and 6 from back side of body.
    Left side its is 4 inches from front and 6 from back side of body.

    So what are my options and what should I further do?

    Any good place in Lahore to get it checked and fixed?

    Solution can be simple and could be a total bummer.

    Maybe it was a major accident and frame is damaged and it will never run straight.

    Second thing can be that you will have to redo all the front suspension.
    I will begain by going to toyota 3s dealer explain the problem to them after inspection i guess they will give you list of parts you need to replace.....
    Which would be cv joints, bushes, control arm Upper and lower, coss, stabilizer etc... or what ever is damaged.
    RIP

    How U came to know that it hit footpath in past?
    U can get your car inspected....suspension problems are very irritating.
    I used to have a corolla & it used to get out of alignment every month..
    <..If everything seems under control, U r not going fast enough..>
