Most like it is unsafe to drive. The mounting points of the suspension require an upper and lower pivoting joint. There are some differences in front wheel and rear wheel designs and whether you have struts or shocks to cushion road impacts.

Some strut assemblies have bearing "rings" which pivot when the steering in turned from side to side. Bearings can work their way loose and leave voids which collapse.

In either design, the weight of the car is pushing on these parts. Even wheel bearings can cause a shift in how the tire sets. But by this time you are approaching a dangerous condition where a spindle can snap or brakes can bind as the rotors shift from the collapsed bearings.

You need some special tools to disassemble and reassemble the parts.

Plese rate my info.

Rear driver side wheel is leaning inward on 2001 Toyota Camry..i think it's shock but idk...what is another possible issue and is it easy to fix?


You need a front end alignment if the steering parts are not worn. But based on the fact that the condition is so noticeable I think you have a seriously worn or broken part in the front end that needs replacement. An alignment afterwards.

Front passenger wheel leaning on 98 expedition


This is most likely a ball joint problem. If you can, jack that tire up in the air and see if you can move the whole tire in and out from the top. Try to see if there is movement in the ball joints while you move the tire. If that is not the problem, it could be a wheel bearing, but i would check the ball joints first. Hope this helps.

Front right wheel is leaning inward. vibration when on highway


You have a major amount of positive camber. You car must be undrivable. Did you hit something? You need to get it into a suspension centre and find out what has been bent.

Front left wheel has ''broken loose'' from the front end.


From your description, it sounds as if the lower ball joint is broken. I'm not there to see it, or i would give you an exact diagnosis. Chances are, whatever the issue is, you will be able to repair it yourself.
