Q: Steering knuckle not aligning with strut.

asked by on January 19, 2016

I can't get the steering knuckle to align with the strut on the right side.

I need a little more information regarding the vehicle model and the repair that is being attempted in order to point you in the right direction. If you are in a pinch and cant get it right alone, a mobile technician from YourMechanic can complete the inspect your car and make any necessary repairs for you.
