Recently hit a curb in my S13....bent my LCA to hell...replaced the LCA...and the hub was still tilted in positive camber....messed around with the UCA and put the car back on the ground...and the tire still leans out just a bit with some positive camber...did i possibly bend something else? UCA? Spindle? any suggestions? i was thinking about getting an alignment...but i dont want to spend money when something else could be bent...

check your subframe for tweaks. might not be enough to see with the naked eye though...i assume you already checked your hub/knuckle?

I am not sure, it is a pretty common thing, you should be able to find it in a search on here.


bdubnyc - check your actual shock tower, if you bent the LCA that bad I wouldn't be surprised if your whole front frame rail was tweaked.

Front frame rail? this is the rear lower control arm...i guess i should peep at the subframe...idk if it would be easy to spot out a bend in it....this fucking sucks..

PS: Oh forgot to mention...the driver side is fine and the negative camber is still fine on the driver side ever since i lowered the car...its just the passenger side where i hit the curb that still has the slight positive camber from hitting the curb.

My bad, I didn't read your post right then.

Did you check out all of your arms? I'd check the camber arm itself, and check the areas the arms bolt to on the subframe. Compare to your side that didn't hit.

if it were me i'd compare all the arms on that side to the opposite side

check for any major differences, at the very minimum you can source all new stock arms as they aren't worth shit

Yea ive compared all the arms to the driver side and they all look fine...i plan on swapping out the upper control arm with another stock one sometime soon and see if that makes any difference.

Wipe it down, and check it out every day. It's kind of hard to diagnose that over the internet, haha.

It's not the switch as I've tried 3. To my knowledge I haven't messed with the wiring concerning the wipers.

Any ideas where I should be checking first to fix this small, but irritating issue.
Yo Jimbo had the same thing happen to me. I thought it was the switch and it wasnt. I checked the hardness that goes from underneath the driver side to the fender well and the wires that are for the windshield wipers were grounding to bare metal. I guess in my case I had just did the hardness tuck because of my car being low it had chewed up the hardness and didnt noticed they were exposed and just did the tuck. So i took the fender off again and check all the wires there and sure enough them wires were exposed and grounding.... fixed it, put everything back on and everything was back to normal.

Not saying this will fix it but hey give it a try

I've never heard of anyone having their title salvaged due to an odo malfunction.

my friend wondered the same thing and grounded that tab. his car started fine but was running weird/abnormal. he took it off and his motor was running like it should. i also have a ka24e and that tab isn't hooked up to anything.
