2004 Chevy Tahoe rearend out of line


The rear sway bars have not been replaced. When you look at the driver side rear the tire is even looks like it not stright. I can see where the tire is scrubbing the inside where the i believe it the control arm mounts to the frame. When you look at the rear of the tahoe while its on level ground it leans to the L side. When i measure the height of the frame from the ground there is about 1 inch difference. Also measuring from center of front wheen to the center of rear wheel there is about 1 1/2 inches difference. Any other Ideas? I am taking it to a shop to have the frame checked to make sure its not bent.

There are many other things that can be bent, and it may not be visible to the naked eye. Hitting a curb at 50 mph is a BIG impact, the mounting points for the suspension components may be bent as well. This isn't a job for a mechanic, bring the car to a GOOD, reputable body shop. They have the equipment and expertise to diagnose exactly what is damaged/bent.

It was snowing today and on my way home i hit a curb in the front of the car. after i hit the curb my car could not drive straight, what could be the problem and how much does it cost?


you might have damaged a critical component in the wheel well. Which exactly, I cannot say, but it's most likely your issue. Get it checked out , it's very dangerous to drive the car in that condition, no matter what the cost.

The front right tire hit the crub to avoid and accident it bent the sway bar which i replaced but the tire is at a angle and is wearing out the outside of the tire. what else would the problem be?


Your control arm or tie rods may be bent. If you hit a curb hard enough to bend the sway bar other things are probably bent also. Best bet is to take it to a front end shop and have it checked don't just start replacing parts. The car will need to be realigned when parts are replaced.

I would get a second opinion but yes you can tweek a component a small amout but still take it out of adjustment range. You normally wouldn't replace a frame but would have it straightened by a professional body shop. It may be prudent to involve the insurance company
