Hello people ! This is my first post ever , I really hope i can get help on this !

My Grizzly's front right wheel was bent outwards (from the top) ever since i purchased it 2nd hand. I took it to a mechanic to get it fixed , he replaced the steering knuckle with a new one but the problem is still there. Recenty I felt like the steering wheel has become a little more shaky than usual...What else should i check/replace to make the wheel straight again ? You can see the problem clearly from the pictures.

Can you tell if its the wheel, upper tie rod, or upper/lower a-arm? Maybe the lower A-arm is pushed inboard? You could always lift the front up, take the front wheels off, and measure the distances comparing the left side to the right to see if anything is misaligned. That'd probably be the easiest way to find the problem.
