Upper control arm "dogbones" the pillow bushings go, and cause the camber.

I dont know if you have solved this yet but check the bushings on the suspension or the arms. If one is worn or damaged it will cause the tire to bend outward or inward and cause the tires to wear uneven.

I think your vehicle has independant suspention. So the sway arms need to be adjusted. Or the spring tention is not right on the struts.

Preventing tire wear is about regular maintainence to your vehicle.
You should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles , and keep
your tire pressure at factory pressures as indicated by the tag
inside the drivers door column.
Alignment is another factor in tire wear , look at your tires carefully .
Look for any unusual wear , especally on the inside of the tires,
as this is usually the most troublesome spot.
As vehicles age , the springs lose their tension to a degree.
This causes a problem in the tire angle called "camber".
The vehicles wheels are tilted inward at the top.
Excessive negative camber will wear the inside of the tire.
Most vehicles can have this corrected by properly aligning
the vehicle .
Another wear problem can be caused by the toe adjustment
being out of specifications .
This is the most destructive angle to tires , it the same angle you use to steer the vehicle left and right .
It normally causes inner and outer tire edges to wear rough in
one direction smooth in another while rubbing your hand around the
tire.
Both these angles can be corrected by a professional alignment .
Be sure the technician inspects your front end for any worn parts,
as aligning it with them is a waste of money and time .
Always ask for a before and after printout of your alignment.

Probably just needs an alignment. Also.............your tires will wear more evenly if you keep the tire pressure at 35PSI in all 4 tires. I don't know why but, that seems to be the best tire pressure to run on Elements.

Definately an alignment issue. May even be something damaged. Need to find out as you may have a pre-existing condition that you can take back to where you purchsed this vehicle.

Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.

Rear suspension seams to shoot on our 04 outlander,rear wheels are tilted wearing out the inside of the tires what do we need to do to fix this problem


It's probably caused by a ride height problem, most likely related to worn springs. It seems unusual in a six year old car but I've seen it before. Go to a shop that does 4 wheel alignment and make sure to get the print out from the alignment machine. A good alignment starts with ride height measure, and rear wheels are adjusted first. When you read the printout, make sure something has been done to the rear. A lot of techs only adjust the front

Uneven wear on rear tires..


the front end will need alignment kits installed that allow for the adjustment to be made to correct the tire wear, this has to be done on a alignment machine to set correctly, just eye balling it is not an option.
