Default Noisy turning with pictures...

I noticed the past couple of days I could hear a clunk or a rub coming from the front passenger side when making turns at a very slow speed. So I inspected the outside and found this.



Nothing wrong here.... ( driver side)


Uh oh....(passenger side)


Something isn't right...


Definatly not right...


So, what am I looking at this time guys? The tire does touch the inside of the fenderwell... :(

Take that wheel off and check out your a-arms and ball joints. Something is bent or broken.

It definitely looks like the right side of the front suspension has shifted horizontally towards the rear by almost an inch or so. Yeah, I'd be looking closely at lower control arm bushings, steering knuckle, tie rods and so forth for missing, broken or bent components.

I really don't know, I only checked it when I started to hear a rubbing sound while turning. Maybe I didn't hear the rubbing because the heat was on before, and now its off (since it'* warm out now.)

Looking at some pictures from about a month ago, it was like that...

This car has had its tires replaced and brakes done since I've owned it. You think one of them would have mentioned something if there was something horribly bent/broken?
