Usualy the problem you have is associated with incorrect tyre pressure or camber adjustment.Has that strut or tyre/rim ever hit a kerb and are all the stabiliser bushes in good condition.Some sport based models had more camber than standard.As to cost cant help with that as there are too many differences in price depending on who and where you are and shop.Good luck

I have a 2008 Nissan Maxima, at 70mph the rear left tire seems to have a wheel balance problem, the tire makes a funny noise and the rear end shakes. The tire is wearing uneven also. Is this a wheel...


To check and see if it is a strut problem push down on the rear of the vehicle. the car should only bounce 1 to 2 times once released go from side to side if it bounces more than 2 times that shows a worn strut. You can also jack the vehicle up and check the rear tire for play. if you have play it could be a strut or a trailing arm bushing.

The tires are wear out on the inside and dishing on the outside, is this a sign of wore out struts causing the front to be out of line. What is the fix needed replacw struts in front and new tires


Wearing on the inside can be caused by an excessive camber angle or excessive toe out, or both. Either of these can be caused by worn or damaged suspension parts. Camber affects Caster, and Camber and Caster affect Toe. Toe affects the Thrust Angle. (These are the major suspension angles involved in wheel alignment) The "dishing" or "cupping" is caused by what is sometimes called "wheel-hop" this can be caused by worn-out struts or shocks and can also be caused by tires that are seriously out of balance.

The recommended "Fix" would be to inspect the ENTIRE suspension system to check for loose and/or worn and/or damaged parts. Replace any of these parts as necessary. Then replace and balance the tires and head straight over to the alignment shop to have all of your suspension angles set to manufacturer's specifications. (Most tire stores also have an alignment machine)

My back tires are rubbing against the struts. I have checked the wheels and tires and both are correct sizes for my car. I can not figure out why the tires are rubbing the struts. The inside of the tires...


There are a couple of things that can cause this. worn parts used for aligning the rear wheels can cause it (they're kinda like tie rods, but don't tie the wheels together) or, the wheel bearings are going out. neither are extremely expensive, but are very important. The wheel bearings are the most likely, as they will allow the tops of the tires to tilt towards the inside. Jack up your car so that the rear wheels are off the ground. Can you make the wheel wobble all directions(even if only a small bit)? If so, then you need to change those rear wheel bearings.

Flat spots on tire


This could be one of three things , either you have an alignment issue , bad suspension parts or just the lack of tire rotation. If the flat spots are at an angle from outside edge to inside edge then the problem is with your rear struts. If the flat spots are either on the out side edge or inside edge then the you have an alignment issue. If the flat spot are consistent all around the tire then you have a tire balance issue or bad rear struts.
