    Wheel alignment and still not right

    So I ran over a dead deer a few months ago and took it in for a wheel alignment since it was off. After 3 visits to have it rechecked, the wheel is ****ed to the right and it still pulls. They are telling me the camber is off 2 deg on the one side and they can't see what is bent.

    Anyone hit a big pothole or similar and may have an idea of what to look at? I am not seeing anything bent either.

    Post pictures at least as a start, or better yet, find a shop that knows what they are doing.

    I've decided to take it to a body shop. I believe and they seem to agree that the strut is bent. It's not overly obvilous but it looked slightly kinked to me. Will let you know how it is when I get it back.

    Finally got the car back from the body shop. Bent strut and some tugging and aligning of the engine cradle. It now rolls strait as an arrow.
