Rear wheel leaning . Help !

Hi guys I've rolled my quad a few times and bent a few wheels like a few others I'm sure. My problem is now my rear left wheel has a distinct inward lean . I know the wheel is not bent because it's new and doesn't wobble. The hub seems to turn true also. I took the wheel off to look at the A arms and cast aluminum thing and they all "look straight " to me . I've obviously tweeked or bent something but it's so subtle that I don't know what new parts I need to fix it . My tires are wearing more on the inside so I know it's not just how IRS sits funny sometimes. Has anyone had this happen or is there a component that bends more often than others back there ?
Any experience from the group here would be appreciated thanks.

Hmmmmm... You rolled it a few times you say? If you have checked all the usual suspects it may be time to take it the local Honda stealership for a checkup.

Wish I could offer better advice, but depending on how many times it's been rolled, you could be looking at a number of things.

Yeah what he said, if A-Arms are straight, it has to be a bearing. Have you jacked it up and shook it down, to check for play? You said your tires are wearing, so this is on both sides?

Only the left rear tire is wearing uneaven on the inside. I jacked it up and took wheels off and felt for play and everything feels nice and tight. It hasn't been rolled end over end multiple times or anything but I have gone over backwards and flopped her on her side a few different times .
It handles fine and it's not that badly bent. I was just wondering if anyone else has bent stuff back there and what the weakest bend points may be.

Most of the rear end "stuff" is pretty solid. Are you absolutely positive it's not the wheel?

Have you taken a close look at the hub?

I know the hub and wheel are true because when I turn the wheels up on blocks nothing wobbles and the wheel stays on that slight angle. i took the upper a arm off and all the bolts came out nicely and every thing seems to fit nicely no pressure anywhere to re assemble of anything weird . I guess ill just ride her nobody's perfect .

Where the A arm connects to the frame may be pushed in a little and that would make the wheel lean inward

I'll 2nd that I believe that it is the end of the upper a-arm. My right side tire has a little lean. Has since I rolled the quad a few months after I got it.

I have actually been thinking about having the upper a-arm and upper knuckle redone for more strength and wheel clearance. I was thinking that the center area of the upper knuckle could be removed and then a rod put on the end of the rear a-arm that would mount to the center of the knuckle. Rath Racing is about 15 miles from my house and they would be my contact if I would decide to make this change.

I egged a 10" rear wheel after jumping and it rubbed the upper a-arms in 2 spots. I have since bought Hiper rims. They won't dent or ding but they can crack under a hard impact. But at least with the modular design I can replace 1 piece of the wheel instead of the whole darn thing.

Glad to hear I'm not not the only one to of bent stuff back there. Sounds like it's most likely knuckle or upper A-arm / mount related . Luecker if you ever change how your knuckle mounts make sure you show us .
