In reply to # 3639111 by ACE2 You could always adjust the right and left tie rod ends to center the wheel. You might lose some travel on one side. I wouldn't worry about it not being centered as long as it tracks straight. If it doesn't, there are other issues. The main thing to worry about is the structural integrity of the unit body. Make sure the floor pans are hole free and that there are no rust spots or holes in the rocker panel assemblies. The doors should have even gaps and open and close smoothly.

The steering wheel is offset to driving position for my RHD car. As already said this was common in this era of cars.



Cheers Rob
