pix of it can help alot, esp where you're experiencing issues. Might I recommend removing the camber kits, and selling them. I promise you, you don't need them. Everything thinks kits are needed when you lower, and they're not. There's only a couple of us on here that had to use them b/c we're insanely lower than everyone else.

Alignments help the car more than anything.

Take it to an lignment place and a body shop. They have the exprience to tell you whether the car was in a accident based on visual and alignment results. I m going to say yes, it was in accident and that is why you having body frame problems. You can run a car fox too.

Pictars of the the parts on the car. Lets us see what your seeing. Lovely purple control arms btw.

Still need better pictures. Take shots of the undercarriage, and then to help see if the frame is twisted and/or panels not lining up, take dead on shots at each headlight, looking down the car. take one front/center of car, same w/ back, so on and so forth.

I want purple lca's and nuts!!!!!!!! i had a silver/green/purple theme. so pretty

Its like a ninja turtle theme.

If you know what your looking for its very obvious if a car has been in an accident or not. Good luck, I hope its clean for you.
