Front end Alinement on craftsman lawn mower

I Have a craftsman Riding mower with both front wheels canted out at the bottom. Is there a way to aline them?

simplest way to fix the cant issue is to take it to a shop...pull the front tires and have them heat the lower portion of the spindles and carefully bend them down til desired cant is achieved. Re-grease spindles and you are back in business. Fixed mine this way and its just dandy.

It ain't the factory way...but its a heckuva lot cheaper than replacing the spindles.

It happens when someone drops the mower hard on the front end....something's gotta give.
