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.

My car is eating away at my tires


Keisha,

How many miles on these tires? Are they wearing on the outside edge, inside edge, or evenly across the tread? do you have them rotated regularly? Generally the number one cause of premature tire wear is improper inflation. Always use the tire pressure information on the sticker on the inside of your driver side door, not the "Max PSI" listed on the tire. The second cause is the wheels being out of alignment. Most tire shops will check the alignment for free. I usually suggest Firestone because they (to my knowledge) are one of the only shops left that do lifetime warranty alignments. Good luck and hope this helps.

Tires are wearing


Car Tyres will eventually wear out!
I will assume that your Tyres are wearing out quickly and unevenly on one side of one tyres: this is a 'typical' scenario (with some symptoms being vibrating steering wheel, car pulling on one side when braking) when I highly recommend a full wheel alignments as well as getting your Tyres dynamically balanced: a good autoshop or Tyre shop will confirm the issue.
Another possibilty but not as common is your car braking system could be defective thus causing one or more wheels to lockup before the other thus causing tyre burns and wears.
I suggest you consut a mechanic! Hope the information is of some help and let me know how you go!

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.

This blazer is two wheel drive, does it require a two wheej or four wheel alignment?


It doesn't really matter, cause if you don't have good wheel alignment on your tires it can cause a rough driver (on certain speed) and irregular tire wear. Go ahead and do wheel alignment on all wheels. Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate the answer, it helps me, thanks!

Front tire on pasingers side is waring on the out side and yet it will not pull eather way whenyou let go of the wheel, the drivers side is not wearing at all ,ondly the pasingers side


There is excessive camber in the front suspension, causing the wheel to lean too much to the inside or outside and putting too much load on one side of the tire. The car may simply need the wheels aligned, but misalignment could be due to sagging springs, worn ball joints, or worn control arm bushings. Because load has a great affect on alignment, be sure the car is loaded the way it's normally driven when you have the wheels aligned

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.

Possible suspension problems


need to jack that side up and check for looseness in wheel the popping is probably your axle going bad since the boots are ripped. might also have a wheel bearing worn this will cause the tire to lean and vibration jack up and shake wheel

Alignment


Alignment deals with tire wear. If you look at the wheels and they are leaning in or out far enough that it is obviously wrong. Then it would.
