    Sorry guys. New here and have only heard good things that's why I joined. I have a 08 dclb and Well someone put a parking stop in the middle of the road and I hit it. It wasn't straight across so it wasn't head on. More of at a angle. Almost like going up a curb at a angle. Don't know much about these trucks and the little piece that sticks out from the spindle is now rubbing the tire. Only passenger front and the tire is cambured in tho rub it. Don't know where to start looking. Took the tire off and nothing was broken but not sure if something may be bent. Any one got advice? Thanks a million.

    Most likely a bent spindle. The good news is that you can usually find used ones for sale on the cheap and it's a relatively easy installation.

    Definitely post pics when you can. Welcome!

    Ya. It happened last night and I work early so havnt had a chance for picks. I've bent spindles on my other truck before and have noticed it but it looked fine and tie rod was straight and joints were all in place. I was hoping it was out of alignment but wanted to hear someone else recommend it.
