Knocked the Tracking out at the very least,
but for the wheel to shift centre in
one go, its more serious than tracking.

You need to get someone to have a look at it
for you asap.

Check the sponsors page Click Me

And give them a call, as your car may not be safe to drive?

Hope this helps.

For the steering wheel to move a 1/4 of a turn you have bent a steering/suspension component.

This in turn has altered your wheel alignment & Tracking.

You need to get the vehicle looked at professionally to fully asses the damage. You will probably have to have one or more steering/suspension components replaced and then the full four wheel alignment re-set to re-set the tracking and straighten your steering wheel.

The vehicle may not be safe to drive and you will be ripping the front tyres appart with the tracking being so far out.

Was that your Calibra smack

I seen one of my staff working on it earlier today but didnt realise it was your's.....

It would appear you got off with the damage lightly mate, just the wheel alignment was re-set by our state of the art lazer equipment and the job's a good one.

Your a lucky man to have not damaged any suspension/steering parts mate.
