Default What would cause this!!!!

about a month ago my drivers side ball joints busted i since have replaced all 4 and i lost my drivers side tie rod end in the mess up i had my local shop replace those parts and they tried to give me an allignment but were unable to complete it they sd my pittman arm is loose and i need to replace it and the center link when look at my truck from the front i notice that the driverside tire sticks out much more than my passenger tire. is this cuz the allignment was not done? I still need to replace the pittman arm but i looked at teh center link and it doesnt show any signs of bending and since there is no bushings is it mandatory that it is replaced?

i would say no on the centerlink... i would however replace the pitman arm...

your tire sticks out due to the toe being out from them replacing a tierod end and not alligning it.. they could have gotten it a little closer than that though if they were good they could have got it damn near where the old one was already and there wouldnt be much adjustment needed...
