    Update: after thorough inspection, lower suspension arm bushings are all broken/worn. Lower suspension control arm pala yung napalitan yung may ball joint.

    This might be it. Broken bushings apat lahat. I saw the rubber, all cracked. A good mechanic must have seen these cracks the first day I bought it sa shop.

    Yellow circle, bushings are cracked.
    Black circle, yan yung napalitan together with the upper suspension arm. Ano ba tawag dyan?

    You said kasi all bushings etc.. are replaced eh.. lower control arm bushing.. usually replace the whole assembly or replace the bushing (push in / out)

    If lower arm bushings are cracked, it will manifest as negative camber or vibrations during braking.

    Have you checked the steering rack bushing?

    If the suspension bushings (yellow circles) are sold individually at the casa or Kia specialty shops then its the best move. The black circle is the lower ball joint. OEM is still the best. Not so sure if there are third party companies that makes spare parts for Kia (ie 555 suspension parts for japanese cars)..
    Just curious, a good alignment shop will be able to diagnose these loosened bushings and balljoints before they will do wheel alignment

    Can a worn lower suspension arm bushing cause misalignment? Judging from my front tires' appearance, parang naka liko pa kaliwa onti yung left tire. Toe in toe out yan diba? Ayaw ko na kasing gumastos tapos hindi parin wala yun ang reason bakit misaligned

    yespo.
    all the suspension parts under there, are dependent on each other for proper alignment.
    and don't forget the shock towers.

    Naghahanap ako ngayon ng replacement bushings. If wala akong makita, buong assembly nalang. May cruven dito sa davao. Doon first stop ko.

    All worn out parts needs to be replaced first before doing an alignment. Otherwise, the extra play and movement from those worn out parts (bushings, ball joints, links, etc.) will just negate any alignment that has been done.
