I took the car in for an alignment and was told my caster on the front passenger was way off. Firestone thinks its a "possible bent component on front right". What can it be?:jawDrop:

front left before after
camber = 0.0 -0.7
caster = 7.1 6.3
toe = 0.02 0.03

front right before after
camber = -0.1 -0.6
caster = 7.4 7.0
toe = 0.13 0.06

On the IS300, there is no caster adjustment in the front, your car has frame damage sorry to say or something is seriously bent, like if you slammed a curb or something you may have bent or damaged one of your lower control arms. It would have taken a lot to knock it that far out of alignment. And those numbers could still be a little better if they did an alignment on your car just a little FYI you want 0 toe, less toe less friction that your tires have either with the tires looking like this, if you were to look the car straight on with the wheels straight, / \ thats neg. toe, or like this\ / pos. toe. and depending on your driving style you anywhere from -.05 to -1.5 of camber your tires leaning in just the slightest bit on top.
