A fortnight ago I was hit by a DHL truck. The driver didn't check the road was clear and drove into the side of me while I was waiting at a junction, totally his fault. Anyhow I've Been paid out by insurance and kept the car, my 56 plate 206 verve 1.4. The impact to the front driver side wing and wheel. The noticeable damage is that obviously the wing is dented and also the wheel is titled in. The cars been into a local garage and he advised replacing the shock as it appeared to be bent. Got the car back last night with the new shock fitted. Wheel still appears to be titled (negative camber) on closer inspection I've noticed that behind the tire the clearance to the shock is far less than the other side, the garage said it was almost touching originally. Now to be fair the garage has a very good reputation and are not type to throw lots of parts in if not needed. I feel he's looking to correct the issue but by bit. He said I may need a new bearing, this I agree as there is a rumble from the wheel at 40mph. He also mentions possibly the hub. Now I canvases how the hub could cause the wheel to tilt like this. Has anyone any suggestions I'm calling back in tomorrow or Monday.
