What makes the rear wheel lean inward on a 93 Buick regal?

Your rear springs are probably the cause. Over time the springs get weak and cause the rear to sag. If you have independent suspension, which the 93 does, it will cause the tires to lean in a little. This will also cause the tires to prematurely wear on the inside. I think that car has leaf springs not coil springs. Your shocks are probably shot also, but that would not make it sag, that would just make the car very bouncy.

Overloaded ERF EC11 and now rear wheels wont turn broken Diff?

possible but if you overloaded the unit I would be checking for a broken axle . Jack up the vehicle and turn the tail shaft to see there are any violent noises indicating a pinion gear/ crown wheel gear failure. remove drain plug to check for metal pieces on magnet

97 dodge stratus rear wheel lean

The first step is to put up on a lift and look for any bent arms, the most common reason for a leaning wheel is somthing is bent, compare to the otherside and see if any of the arms are bent, after replacing bad parts an alignment will be needed. good day.

No it doesn't, but something happened to your rear end. It must have too much weight in the trunk, or the bolts have come loose and let the rear end slip down, I know they can be brought back up, there are shims that slide in and out to get it aligned, but usually, they stay put because of the weight difference, I would take it to a different garage and have them look at it and make sure nobody messed with it. Then get it shimmed back up. A lot of cars come off the line like that, VW's, BMW's, How would like to pay $30,000 for a car with the rear wheels leaning in at the top? I wouldn't. Check it out, Hope this helps.

Rear shock are stuck in high motion causing car to lean forward . is there a sensor or do you have to let air out of shocks. please advise as to location or procedure

Had same problem with my Caddy POS . I took off left rear wheel and disconnected air line. Make sure you take fuse out of system in trunk behind back seat so that the problem doesn't occur again. Just let car ride on suspension. Should not be a problem as long as you don't overload trunk.

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.
