Alright so this past weekend i replaced my strut mounts,prior to doing this i noticed the same thing. When i look at the front of the car from an angle,i see the drivers side tire sits farther into the wheel well than the passenger side tire does,when i say sits farther in,i mean horizantally pushed in,not like a shot strut or broken spring. When i first got the car and done the car fax theres no accident record. any idea what would cause this? also to throw this in there,i COMPLETELY forgot to lube the strut it gonna kill me?

My cars the same way. I don't think it's been in an accident either so I don't know what's up.

I did the mounts on friday,had the alignment done saturday morn bright and early. The alignment wasnt far off at all,but i still had it done at belle tire. I just cant figure out why the tire sits in like that,im kinda glad to know its not just my for the clunks,im not too old mounts were bone dry and taken off multiple times,for struts and springs,installed seperately,and i forgot to lube them that time(idiot haha)...the bearings in them were just completely shot. Reason being i changed them in the first place was of a knock on the passy side...the damn knock is still gonna lube the area this weekend,hopefully it will help

Yeah, those things are a bitch. If you dont seat them exactly right and lube the hell out of them, they knock like crazy. If youre getting noise, its worth reseating them before you do any damage.
