One wheel pokes more than other? Uneven fitment? HELP!
Posted 08 November 2012 - 04:01 PM
Wasnt sure which subforum to post this in but basicly my front right wheel (17x9 -13) is almost flush with the guard and then my front left wheel (same specs) is inset by a very noticable amount. Im concerned there is something seriously wrong with the car, Ive measured the guard space and they are even so its not that, Ive also measured the mounting points for the guards in the engine bay on diagonals to see if that measured up the same, and it was fine.
Any insight? Maybe this is common? The car is a 79 280zx 2+2, only owned it for about a month now.
Here are a couple pics,
Thank you in advance!

One of my front guards sits further back than the other, I can't confirm how but my front end isn't completely square, it's had a bit of a knock previous to my owning of it.

I just noticed also the right rear is also pertruding slightly more than the rear left but not as noticable as the front..

hubs/struts on one side from a later 280zx with different hubs? (Not sure how/if they changed over the years)

It could be a case of someone replacing one side due to damage but taking the parts from an earlier ZX.

Wait.. aren't you selling it though?
Yeah ive put it up but Im in no rush to sell and Im still going to make sure its in tip top shape for next owner
I try and sell cars how I would like to buy them, if that makes sense.

but more common than not is a bent strut shaft and or strut tube,
would need to checl camber of each side to ascertain if it is this and or remove shockers and spin them to see if there is a sufficient amount of runout.

I think you are being a bit too hopeful asking for a reply from brains.
He has not posted here since 9 December 2012, when he announced that he had sold this car.
It seems that the car became a parts car and probably no longer exists - the uneven wheel positions may have been a major contributing factor in its demise.
If you have a similar issue with your car, there are many suggestions above to diagnose the problem - have you tried them yet?

Gone though same process checked everything its all the same. I have a 15mm difference from each side. The only thing i can think of is coil-overs weren't welded up straight.
