A normal amount of angle is proper for the kind of car or truck you drive. Horizontal angle is called "Toe-In" or "Camber" and Vertical angle is called "Caster." A wheel alignment specialist will be able to tell you quickly whether your car or truck requires the $100 wheel alignment procedure to assure your tires wear evenly on each axle. Front tires always wear more, particularly in front wheel drives vehicles as the tires have two kinds of wear: steering wear from side to side, and increased friction wear from torque application from acceleration. FWD vehicles generally require tire rotations twice as often as RWD vehicles for this reason. Always get a wheel alignment when replacing both front tires with new ones to increase tire life.

SOURCE: I have a ford f 150 4x4, that the Passager front

If this is a 2005 F-150 4x4. Usually if there is movement up and down, itmight possibly be the lower ball joints and not the wheel bearing, to verify that it is indeed bearing play you can grab a hold of your tire (with tire of the ground) and try and move it side to side instead of up and down. If you can still feel the movement then it is the wheel bearing. To get to the wheelbearing you will first have to remove the tiny center dust cap in the middle of the wheel. There should be a 13mm bolt you will need to remove under that cap. Next you will have to remove the brake caliper and caliper bridge, then remove the brake rotor. On the backside of the knuckle assembly you will see 4 bolts that hold the hub assembly (your wheel bearing) on. There also may be a plastic ring around the back of the hub assembly too that has vacuum lines running to it for the vacuum hub,this will be held on by 4 or so 8mm bolts, once all these bolts and the4 bolts holding the actuall hub assembly on are removed, you should be able to remove the hub (bearing) assembly from the front of the knuckle assy. Hope this helps.

My front tires are slanting inward and idk how to fix that.


First, are they slanting inwards at the top, or towards the front?
If your tires are slanting inwards like you are turning the car (the front is facing in more than the back when they should be facing straight forwards ... like it's pigeon-toed) then you have an alignment problem. For this you will have to go to a mechanic who can do alignments and they will straighten it out.
If the tire is slanting inwards towards the top of the tire, there are a few issues that could be the cause ...
1. Jack up your SUV so one of the front tires leaves the ground. Grab the tire and push on the top and then the bottom of the tire (above and below the rim). If the tire moves when you push on it, the tie rods or tie rod ends are probably shot. This is a piece of the steering system, and tends to be one of those parts that every car eventually has problems with. If you do not work on your own vehicle very often I recommend taking it to a mechanic to have these replaced since the steering system is so vital to your safety while driving. If you DO most of the work on your own car, and have a lot of experience with it, you should be able to pick up tie rod ends at any auto parts store. While you are there, I recommend getting a Haynes manual for your vehicle -- it will have exact directions on how to change out the tie rod ends, with pictures and all that goodness. If you ever have future problems with the car that you want to fix, this manual will almost always help you get it fixed.
2. If your tire does not move when you check the tie-rod ends, but the tire is still slanted inwards, take a look at your springs and shocks or struts. If the springs are broken or fully compressed when the car is sitting on the ground, then you have to get the suspension pieces repaired. This I HIGHLY recommend taking to a mechanic, even if you DO know what you are doing most of the time. The springs would need to be compressed using a special tool, and if the procedure is done wrong, the springs can shoot off of the compressors and either kill you or cause MAJOR damage to your stuff -- a friend of mine almost died when one of his spring compressors broke ... the spring ended up bouncing around his garage for about 20 minutes, destroying everything it hit, while he hid under the car. Fortunately he survived with no injury, but his garage and car were both totally destroyed in the process).
3. If the springs are not fully compressed while the Bronco is sitting on a flat surface, then it might be the shocks / struts. The only difference between a chock and a strut is that one is in the center of the spring, the other is located right next to it. Make sure that the rubber pieces on your shock/strut are in good condition, and that there is no fluid leakage. If these are broken, I recommend taking your bronco to a mechanic, because as above, these are very dangerous parts to replace if you don't know exactly what you are doing.
The only other issue that I can think of off the top of my head that would cause your tires to slant inwards is loose lug nuts ... but if it is happening on both front tires this is VERY unlikely. Make sure all of your lug nuts are tight or your tires might fall off while driving.
If you have recently swapped out the engine in your bronco for something much bigger, then you might have put more weight on the front suspension that needs to be accounted for ... and none of the above solutions will fix it. For this, you need to upgrade your front suspension to account for the extra weight -- this would require a specialty store, and after-market parts (like a lift kit).
There is also a VERY small chance that you have 2 bent axles ... but if both front tires are slanting in at about the same angle, 99.999% chance that this is not your problem. If it is just one tire that has this problem, then you will probably notice a strange bounce while driving, and this is a more likely scenario ... but I really don't think it's that.
If none of these solutions work ... please put a bit more info about your issue and I will see if I can help some more. If you were able to include a picture of the vehicle that shows how the tires look, that would be a great help. Best of luck .. and be safe if you do the work yourself.

I have a 2005 Ford F-150 5.4L V8 with 140K miles that won't start. Turns over fine. Suspect ignition system or outside possibility of fuel filter. What should be checked and how?


I would start by checking the FPDM ( Fuel Pump Driver Module ) on the cross member by the spare tire.

Drop the spare tire, and check the FPDM to see if it is cracked. My 2006 the case was cracked when I changed it, sure it was not too long before it would have cracked the circuit board

Taken pointing the front of the truck, driver's side rear tire on the left of the picture, the cable to the right is for the spare tire.

This is how far mine had cracked

This is what the fuel inertia switch feeds power to, and the PCM controls to operate the fuel pump.

FRONT RIGHT TIRE IS SLANTED OUTWARDS. TOP IN BOTTOM OUT.


DON'T DRIVE IT !! Jack that side up off ground and use a safety stand grab tire and push in at top, and pull out at bottom, then reverse that, pull out at top, and push in on bottom, then do same from side to side, and observe where all the play is in wheel. Could be ball joint, upper or lower, or both, control arms, or bearing as well. Very unsafe to move it like that.
