front axle problem 340

Hello!, Few mounths ago, my 340 was in repair shop due to a hit on front
axle, on right wheel. After this, I observed that course was different, if I
turn all ( or more than one turn) steering, it seems more soft than central
range and tires appears skip. Tires wears away by ext. sides and looks very
erode by extremal ext. sides.
The great problem have appeared with rain, with wet road, if I brake
suddenly, but not too much, car skips in front, it's very dangerous.

What's happens here?

When the outside edges of the front tires wear severely, it usually means
the alignment is "toed in" too much (the fronts of the tires are closer
together than the backs). You can confirm the wear by putting strips of
masking tape across the front tires and driving a km or so on mostly
straight road. The tape wears the way the tires will wear.

A wheel alignment is a very good place to start. I'm sure it isn't correct
now.
