Default Replacing radius rod, needed hardware?

Previous owner changed out the passenger side radius rod with a newer gen that is shaped differently and it makes my wheel look like "/" not quite that bad of a angle but that's how it is bent in.

So I'm replacing both of them as a rule of thumb.

I'm buying them at Hondanationparts.com and I was curious what parts I need to buy with it. They also list

Bushing front and rear back

Collar back and lock nut back

I'm guessing they don't come preassembled.

I got the hardware question answered.

Would the radius rod cause my wheel to angle in like that?

What else could be the problem? Firestone can't finish my alignment until I get the part fixed. They seem to think it's the radius rod.

i really need this question answered..

what could cause my tire to angle in?

wheel hub bearing has been replaced, lower control arm, upper control arm, inner and outer tie rods, ES poly control arm bushings.

is this radius rod a culprit? or are we looking at something with the frame?

IMO, the radius rod is more for locating the lower arm front to rear.....so if the top is learning in...something else is up.

Sorry, "\" vs "/". Confusing, talk about a car as you sit in the drivers seat but talk about tires as they are viewed from the front????...either way my "understanding" of the rad rod still stands.

Not sure what you meen by "Radious Rod" The vertical alignment of your tire is controled by Camber/Caster adjustments on the inboard side of either, an "A" arm, or Wishbone type suspension. (typically)

After re-reading your post, it appears the former owner installed the wrong "wish bones"

These need to be replaced with the correct part.

A good Alignment shop can restore final adjustments.

Is that even possible? Do they differentiate between left and right or between the years?

Could the knuckle possibly cause the camber issue? Or a bad strut mount?
