Have the rear suspension checked for worn parts. If ok, an alignment check should show either negative toe setting, or a negative camber setting on that wheel. This can sometimes be adjusted out, but often indicates a bent component.

SOURCE: pulls to the right when driving, wears right tire uneven

Ball joints, idler arm, pitman arm and tie rod ends are all problems with these vehicles. If any of these parts are worn it can cause your problem and it cannot be properly aligned until the parts are replaced..

2003 x-type sport suspension is chewing up inside of rear tires what can i do? already replaced shocks,swaybar links & bushings


Your best bet is to break down and go to a good repair shop for a 4 wheel alignment.Most shops give a flat rate on alignments which means you will pay one price regardless of time it takes.Most modern cars have alignment adlustments on the rear suspension as well as front.Also certain vehicles are very sensitive to tire rotations.Make sure you don't exceed manufactures mile recomendations on rotations.Having it done at the proper times can in some cases double tire life.

Acura Cl 2.3 1998 driver side door won't open inside|outside ....


Litteraly can't open the door because of the latch? Can you feel and agffect of the actuator? Have someone push outward on the rear of the door. and the latch end from inside on level ground so noone gets hurt while trying to unlatch it. push in on the door if yhe out fails. The latch may be hopefully just bound up.. May not be the solution but just trying to help at this point.

1998 olds aurora wears out inside of front tires


Unless there is noise or play when cornering sharply at low speeds (parking), the CV joint / boot is still ok. The joint does need grease in there and the rubber boot fitted properly very soon.

As the suspension is set, the axle does little more than provide drive. It doesn't affect toe-in or camber angle.

Camber angle (vertical tilt inwards) is a product of the suspension design, and often cannot be altered.

Weak front springs can also throw this angle out, as the vehicle sits too low.

Toe-in (forward point angle) can and must be set accurately, or you will skid about in wet weather depending which tyre grips more.

What is most important to you, is the tyre design, tread width and outer radius. Also the tyre pressures MUST be mid limit when cold on the front - otherwise excess wear will result.

Having tyres with a large contact area that are too rigid on the front will increase wear to the insides.

Also, it is good practice to rotate the tyres to even-out wear. Usually front tyres move to rear axle, and rears swap sides to front axle. If wear is uneven, pop them off and turn around before refitting. Some tyres you cannot do this with.

If you choose a tyre with a harder tread compound, or ones with "C" at the end of the code, these will again last a lot longer.

Thanks for using Fixya!. If this provides an answer for you, please rate as such. Thanks.
