As title states I'm hoping I can get. Better directive to where to start looking for my issue.
It's a 1998 civic lowered considerably on F&F coilovers with skunk2 adj. control arms.
Seemed good but wanted to verify the alignment and found out there is an issue somewhere. Something either bent or pushed is what I am told.
To describe it is with steering wheel straight- one side you would have the wheel 4 finger width on left of wheel 3width on right side.
And vice versa on other wheel.

Maybe the lower control arms bent? Suggestions?

Yeah, I tried that. They didn't really have a lot to say about it. They just said that it had something definitely wrong somewhere.
Wasn't sure if this was a scenario people had ran into frequently.

The shop like most in my area suddenly don't care once they see it is lowered.

Lol don't think anything like that, clean title car and all core support looks original and unbent or damaged

clean title doesnt mean anything. Just means it wasnt reported.
But really take it to an alignment shop and get a print out. Post the print out and we can tell you what each one means and what part controls that.

Without that there isnt much we can do

Ok yeah I'm going to try to get it as soon as I can. Lol 2 different shops and both never thought to at least shoe where I was currently alignment wise. It's only funny because without wanting it checked I never would have guessed much was messed up

Update to this topic,
Finally got some suspension stuff fixed and problem is better but not gone.
I did:
Both sides
Inner and outer tie rods
Lower ball joints-right side bad
CV axles
And fresh alignment
Driver front lower motor mount-bad

It is better but ended up at -1.1 driver camber
-1.7 passenger side camber in front
Everything else looked pretty good

Ideas on what else it may be?
