    I've screwed my alignment wile changing my struts. You can visibly see that the wheel on one side is leaning. Can someone please tell me a way to get it back how it should be?

    If you want to save your tires, you're going to need to have it realigned.

    You should have already built the cost of getting aligned into the service. You shouldn't alter suspension parts without planning for an alignment.

    I went to get an alignment and they told me they couldn't alight it with the wheel how it is

    We need pictures then, you probably forgot something along the way, or the ball joint has decided to fail. Could be any number of things.

    That means that either something is jacked up beyond what an alignment will solve, or you went to an incompetent shop.
