    2004 stock GTO wheel alignment

    I ran over a parking lot curb while turning hard left. Now the steering wheel is off center to the left about a sixth of a turn. I can't see anything bent or damaged underneath. What could have moved? Maybe the rack shifted? Does anyone know what the toe-in is? I have stock 17 in. wheels and original tires, BFG 245/45-17 KDWS. 16000 miles on the car. I know this was a stupid thing to do,but it was dark and I didn't see the curb.

    Hey John, that was a hard hit, sorry. Sounds like you bent or moved something. I would look at the rack to see if it moved or a tie rod bent or stripped, also check to see if the tie rod end itself has been moved. I bet it you take your time you will find something moved, also check the steering box, have someone move the steering wheel while you watch everything. Sorry I don't know the toe in. Good luck.
