so the knuckle im guessing is way bent to on my car due to how far the tire sits out on the top. is there anyway to get it back straight like what if i went a cheap way instead of buying new struts. and just bent in more in some how would this work.

First place to start is checking everything on the front suspension. Checking for bearing plate firment, control arm insulators, ball joints, tie rods, and for a bent strut. Rust on all the mounts, and missing bolts on the afformentioned peices.
