I think he means you need your caster adjusted.
We don't have that option I believe.

It's called CASTER. It is not available on Civic. Caster is where one can move/adjust a wheel by moving it slightly forward or slightly backward.
The reason why your caster is off bacause your strut cup (where you have 3 strut nuts) is bended due to your accident. So have it bend a bit to where you need it and it should help.

LoL at "bended"

Acura is right. You need to figure out what is bent or potentially change your control arm bushings.

Here's an educational image:


FYI: The caster is what makes your car want to steer straight after you make a turn and let go of the steering wheel.

ic.. dang guys, thanks for the info. hopefully i would be able to fix it later on.. but other than that.. its not a big problem really. its just kinda funny how the car moves right if the road is slanting to the right and viseversa. lol. but other than that, its not gonna affect the thread of my tires.. thats what they say. i think it will thoe, but prolly just alittle.
