Might be normal. Is anything broken, hear any noises, car drive straight, tires wearing fine? It doesn't have to be located exactly in the middle.

other side looks more centered and the wheel bearing is pretty loud on this side could it be caused by wheel bearing when hit throttle hard car pulls to the left


Time to get it into the shop ASAP, you might need new Struts, especially if it has over 100K miles.


The factory strut mounts will corrode and break causing the strut to lean inward. Both struts and mounts should be replaced at the same time.
