Good evening

I have a feeling that the main gear legs on my XS are slightly out of line. I think its due to a couple of hard landings. When I looked at the plane (looking at the front from about 8m away) in the hangar today, it looks as if its leaning slightly to the right.

I have checked the sockets and the re-inforcing ply in the fuselage and all looks to be ok.

My question is, how easy is it to fit new legs? There is a video on youtube showing a guy changing one leg. It appears all he does is remove the socket bolt, pull out the leg, then insert the new one and replace the bolt, job done. Is there any re-alignment of any kind to do?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
