Bent Control Arm? plz help!

My new fiberwerks front nose was just installed on my car.

(not my car)

Unfortunately, I noticed that the right front tire is dangerously close to rubbing my new front spoiler, but not the left. I measured the front nose to see if it was a manufacturing flaw and both sides came up equal. I then measured the distance from the rear of the front wheel well to my tires and sure enough, the right front tire is about an inch forward than my left.
I have to yet to investigate further into this problem and decided to toss this problem your way, fellow Pelicanites.
My car's alignment is off. Moves to the left, hence must steer slight right to go straight. Do you think that might be it? Or maybe the alignment is off because of this descrepancy. Could it be just some worn out bushings?
Please help! I'm begging it's not an expensive problem.

you could at very least just need a steering alignment...at most maybe a control arm which I doubt because your car would handle really bad if the arm was bent...

I can't help but I have a request:

Could you start another thread (so this one doesn't go off your topic) and do a review of the new front spoiler? I am interested in this as I am sure others are. Hearing first hand about installation, fit & finish etc. would be great. Thanks.
