Wheel offset difference at front.


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

hope this is in the right section. 

When viewing the car from the front (gt6 mk3) I’ve noticed the passenger side wheel seems to stick out of the arch more than the drivers side. To my knowledge both wheels are the same offset and no spacers are in use. Tyre sizes are also the same. What else could cause this ?

i will try and take a pic when I’m next with the car.

As Pete hints, this sort of thing is quite often down to the bonnet not being square on the chassis. There are shims on the inboard end of the lower wishbone but it's unlikely you'd have enough inequality there to be visible "when viewing the car". I've come across cars with bent suspension uprights (the bit the spring sits against) but not often. Pete's suggested measurements should pick that up.

Hi all, 

finally got to the car tonight. 

Wheels same distance to chassis on both sides, which was a relief. On closer inspection it seems the overrider/front bumper and bonnet need shifting over toward the passenger side by half and inch or so. May tackle that on weekend but feel it’s going to be a can of worms m
