SOURCE: Front tires on S10 wearing outside edges. Proper

There are lots of suspension fix's you could do to solve this problem, but the cheapest and fastest way is to go to a Tyre Dealer who does wheel alignments an have them tell you what it needs exactly to rectify the problem.
However if you wish to do this and then take it down to get the wheel alignment done, then replacing ball joints, control arm bush's and top and bottom arm bush's will defiantly improve the alignment as well as the handling of the vehicle. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

check your ball joints . jack up the front end and grab the front tire push it in an out if the tire moves in an out your ball joints need replaced .do this to each tire ,if they go all the way out this is an expensive fix ,catch it before it does

Front tyres bolding on the outside


Cars and trucks are supposed to have their tires rotated every 5,000 miles.
Doing this will only slow the wear on the outside of the tire. Whenever you turn a corner, the weight of the car and the forces of friction will cause the outside of the tries to wear off, the rubber is getting "scrubbed off".
Not rotating the tires will cause the outside of the front tires to wear out before any other part of any tire.
Then, there is the matter of worn "front end" parts.
The parts that wear most often and quickest are the tire rod ends. Next are the ball joints, and last are the shocks/struts.
When a car has about 100,000 miles, these parts begin to show their wear by causing bad tire wear.
Someone needs to check your car most carefully to see if any of these parts are causing your problem.
After all the worn parts are replaced, the last thing is the "front end alignment".
As you drive mile after mile, you occasionally hit bumps.
Although these bumps do not show up quickly, the bumps will, over time, cause the tires to become a little crooked, and about once every 3-6 years, the front end needs to be aligned, or have the tires straightened.
Be blessed.

Will bad front ball joints cause excess wear and tear on my front tires?


I vote yes. Any worn component of the front end be it ball joints,tie rods,wheel bearings,even tire balance will adversely affect tire wear.

Left front tire wobbles any ideas on what it is i replaced the axle and now it wobbles


Two options to try first; tire is not on tight, or the ball joint is bad. Either is an easy and cheap fix. Try the tire first, make sure all the lug nuts are tight. If so, it is your ball joint. Imagine a ping pong ball with a screw sticking out of the bottom of it. That is the ball joint. jack up the car, try to wiggle the tire, if the ball joint has a lot of play that if definitely the problem. Not expensive to fix either. If the tire/wheel doesn't go back and forth (has a lot of play) you should take it to a mechanic to see if the tie rods are on correctly. Good Luck!

Front tires on S10 wearing outside edges. Proper


All of the above on a bad day. You will need to find an alignment shop you trust and allow them to check more closely. To ask that kind of question is like you asking me 'How much change do you have in your pocket' of course there is not way for me to know.
I do know most professionals can tell you once they look at it.

You over cost should normally be under 200.00 for repairs and alignment. Look for a special in the paper or online.

I just got my hands on a 95 Pathfinder. The front tires have a lot of wear on the inside edges. I was told by seller that this is caused by driving on pavement in 4WD. As this is my first 4x4, I wasn't...


I'm guessing the lower ball joints are shot. This will cause the tires to lean in on the top and and wear the inside of the tire. I could be wrong! Try jacking the front wheels up and support the vehicle on jack stands, now grab the tire top and bottom and try to rock it in and out. If there is movement, you will have to have someone watch to see what is moving, while you rock it. If it's the ball joints, they will need to be replaced before you can align it. This can be spendy, there's a lot of labor involved.

My 2004 F-150 2WD is making a clanking noise on front left tire


The sway bar linkage probably came undone on one of the sides. Wikipedia has a picture of what your sway bar linkage may look like:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sway_bar

That is a picture of a Porsche sway bar, but the idea is the same. Make sure all bolts are tight and that one end is not missing the linkage that connects it to the spring/strut. The grinding of the brakes may be the sound of the linkage piece touching the rotor. Sway bar is a logical solution to both issues.

If that doesn't fix the issue, put the front end of the truck on blocks or jack stands and have somebody wiggle the tire up/down and side to side while you inspect the mechanical components underneath. Other things to check may be the ball joints, tie rod ends and suspension bits.

Substantial front end shimmy at 50-55 MPH. All new tires, front end parts look good, ball joints fine.


How did the old tires wear. Looking at them will be the indicator of an issue. If they wear on the inside you have a lower ball joint issue. If wearing on the outside the upper ball joints are bad, Also you may of got a defective tire or the balance weight fell off. Also tha axle bearing nut may be loose. Also the linkage going across could have bad ball joints. Best to go get it inspected. Its worth it rather than trying to figure it out yourself

I have a 1997 GMC Sierra. My front left(drivers side) tire wears horribly on the outside. (lookin at the tire from the front of the vehicle, the top leans out, and the bottom cuts in. The outside 6inches...


Align the truck, sound like the camber is out of adjustment the upper control arm is holding it out too much, or your lower ball joint is messed up and lets it tuck in. The tie rods on that truck have nothing to do with it. Ball joints are like 40 bucks each for a good one, and an alignment is like 50. Is this a 4wd truck? If you have torsion bars make sure they are not too tight, when you hit dips its gonna distort the tire to the ground.
