Is it normal that with the placement of the strut bar that the steering wheel has come to the left a little? it did not fit perfectly, but that's normal right?

here is a picture of the bar http://images.esellerpro.com/2489/I/145 ... MA1673.jpg

Thanks in advance

:huh: pretty sure those braces have a bend in them to clear the intake manifold, top braces really make no difference to our cars, the bottom brace is the one that you need.

That link is a control arm

Here's one design for a lower brace

The front of the car was much stiffer and without body roll, in rain the car felt way better. I was saying that maybe the control arm is damaged?
