I just finished replacing a lower control arm and a stabilizer bar link on the front passenger side. Put the car down and started to drive it to get it aligned properly. I could tell something was wrong almost immediately. While my front driver side wheel is straight, the passenger side is turned in like 30 degrees. I was pretty much out of light so I couldn't really check to see if I have done something wrong yet, but I was able to find out that the stabilizer bar link I was given was the wrong piece. My front left original one has a straight bar shape connecting its joints, while this new one has a bent shape in it. I am going to take it back and get the correct part, but my question is, could that be the reason for why the tires were facing different directions? This is the most in-depth suspension job I have done before, so there is definitely the possibility I just made a mistake, but hopefully not.
