Default wj dana 30

Question for the axle gurus out there. Is it possible for the inner c to bend on a dana 30 front axle. My jeep was in an accident, i have replaced all control arms, ball joints, and axle. I took a straight edge and a level to the axle and it was dead nuts straight. however my passenger wheel is tilted in towards the vehicle at the top of the tire. so if looking at it from the front the front wheels would look like this //-----ll. I even got a new knuckle to put on and that didn't fix it. Could this possibly be the inner c being bent? Or any other ideas? Thanks as always!

I'm no axle guru, but it is very possible for the inner C to bend, ecspecially if it was involved in a front collision. The 30 is not a very stout axle. We replace at least a half dozen of these in the winter, due to people sliding on the ice and crashing into a curb. Any good alignment shop should be able to measure your camber, and see if its out of spec. Hope this helps.

a bent inner c is pretty common for a dana 30
