Look at it and find out what is damaged. My guess would be upper or lower control arms, or both.

i had this problem on a freinds 95 civic. what you need to do is fist replace the lower controll arm and ball joint. if that does not work than possibly dry the upper and also the spindle and wheel bering and hub. but odds are its the lower controll arm. he picked one up on ebay preity cheep.

i had an eclipse where i hit a curb and it bent the fram and the lower control arm to where they could not get it perfectly straight.I never replaced and ball joints at all.Replace the lower control arm and check the ball joints and replace the ones that need it then get it aligned.

im gonna use my x ray vision to determine what is bent on your car. hmm, didnt work, guess you can either just start bolting all new suspension on the car OR *light comes on* you can take the wheel off and do a visual inspection, if nothing is obviously bent take it to a shop.

replace the lower control arm! it may seem fine but when you match a good 1 to a bad 1 you will see the difference!

I think i paid 25 for a lower control arm at the junk yard! I did this when i crashed my car and still needed it for a dd till it was fixed....
