SOURCE: 2002 neon rear driver's tire is locked and won't move

sounds like the parking brake cable is stuck on the side, the first step, and the easiest step it to locate the cable behind the tire and really spray it with "WD-40" or "PB Blaster". That is to see if the cable can become free. If that doen't work, than you have to manualy de-adjust the brakes, ny locating a small rubber plug, rectangular in shape and using a brake adjusting tool, (availabel at most auto part stores) to "turn back" the adjusting screww inside the drum.

SOURCE: rear tire wear

This truck has a live rear axle, meaning there is nothing to adjust back there. Have you hit somthing? The wear being on the outside of the tire would indicate that the tire is pointing in to the center of the vehicle. Sight down each of the rear tires to the front tires and see if it appears tif the rear axle is skewed to one side. Possibley bad locating arm busings or somthing bent.

Good Luck

SOURCE: rear strut almost rubs tire

It can be a bent strut or just an alignment issue.
first if you can put the car on a left or jack stands(on the rear but not on the suspention) you can then loosen the 2 bolts at the bottom of the strut at this point you can move the top of the wheel out. then tighten the bolts lower the car and see if that moved the wheel enough. is it did get an alignment and if not replace the strut.

SOURCE: blazer leans to drivers side. causing ireagular

That is pretty easy. You need to have a front end alignment done at a good shop. If there is something bent or worn out, they will be able to tell.
But it could also be the torsion bar is broken, or the rear adjustment rubber bushing for it is broken.
Is it bottomed out on one side? The torsion bars are instead of coil springs, and they spline into the lower track arm, and run towards the back of the vehicle, where the adjustment bolt is. Adjuster is slightly in front of rear axle.

I put all season radial size 225/60R16 on my car back tire on driver's side rub's on bottom of strut.


Has the vehicle been in any accidents on that particular corner of the vehicle may possible have a bent rear strut? Do you know if the rear camber is out of manufacturer spec Does the tire look like it leans in to far? GM did not provide a rear camber adjustment for this vehicle but cam bolts are available to correct some of this adjustment another option is elongating the one of the holes in the strut where the lower strut bolt attachs to the knuckle to provide adjustment. Would take this and have an alignment performed to see if if the rear adjustment can be corrected with suggested methods.

The rear suspension it has new struts and is equiped with air self leveling. but my drivers rear tire is leaning in bad


You will need an alignment. The strut is slotted to allow camber adjustment.If the tire is leaning in then the camber is excessively negative.

Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the


Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

For more details about Jeep Cherokee, review the Service Manual.

Good luck.

Suspension


That's known as negative camber (positive camber would be if the top of the tire were leaning outward). This should be able to be fixed with an alignment as long as the suspension isn't damaged (ie, a bent control arm due to an accident or a hard hit on a curb, pothole, etc).
