    Probably going to have to bend the spindle arms, I prefer to do that with the axle held in a vice, when your done your probably going to have to replace the bushings also
  3. Check for clearance between the tire and front fender, both straight ahead and when turning. I think I can remember trying that on my Avatar and having an interference problem but it has been 40+ years ago and I may be remembering wrong.
