Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Front tire leaning in on top
You should get it to a front end shop, automotive shop or to a mechanic because it could be the front end wearing out badly.

SOURCE: tire leaned in on top
It sounds like either you had a balljoint fail or your alignment/steering has had a serious failure.... did you hit or run over something before the problem?
The other possibility is a broken tie-rod end. Normally, this would not result in the wheel leaning on top- it would be sideways.
Either way, DO NOT DRIVE IT! this is SERIOUS and needs to be fixed ASAP! You can LOSE CONTROL without ANY WARNING!
This is a job for a trained mechanic and please...I beg you...get it TOWED and dont try and drive it!!!

The most common problem would be a bad lower ball joint. It could also be bad control arm bushings or a combination of the two. Neither is an expensive repair. This should be checked out and repaired soon as it could cause control issues. Hope this helps.

I replaced the same part on the driver side of my dodge twice. the third time I found that I had to replace the castle nut. once I did this it fixed the problem. I hope this helps. the nut only cost me $25.
