Default Help This dont look right front suspinsion

So I just bought this 95. front clip is off an 89 or 90. Is it just me, but the front wheel looks pushed back. both pass and driver side are exactly the same. when turning lock to lock the wheels will rub.The truck wasn't wrecked or struck from the front. A tree fell across the hood is all.Is there a way to adjust the caster that much to get the wheels back to were they supposed to be. It drives fine down the road

thanks in advance for any help

You should have the alignment checked to know what is really off and by how much.

it does have a tension rod that runs from the lower control arm forward, should be a couple of bushings (per side)

same basic setup as the 4x4 with the strut rods except as was said the 2wd runs to the front and they are longer.
