Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

What could be the problem if rear driver wheel is leaning out like it is bent? I ran up on a curb and now my driver rear wheel is leaning out some and my front wheel feels like I need an alignment or I bent the lower control arm because it almost looks like the driver wheel is pushed back a little than the front passenger wheel. I was told that my lower control arm is bent on driver side wheel but I want to be sure before I buy this part. has anyone ever had this problem?

The best thing to do is to take it to a local Frame and Alignment Shop and have them put the vehicle on a Frame Machine and take measurements to determine what is exactly bent before throwing money on parts you might not need.

Possible you damaged a wheel bearing, bushing, bent wheel studs, etc. Have a reputable repair shop go over it very carefully.

I have a 04 saab my pass wheel is leaning in. Why?


Have the alignment checked for a camber issue. Have you hit anything recently ( curb/pothole ) that may have caused this issue? Camber angles, if not in specification will cause tire wear and pulling. Most but not all vehicles have a provision for camber adjustment. Worst case scenerio is something is bent and may have to be replaced to correct your problem

97 dodge stratus rear wheel lean


The first step is to put up on a lift and look for any bent arms, the most common reason for a leaning wheel is somthing is bent, compare to the otherside and see if any of the arms are bent, after replacing bad parts an alignment will be needed. good day.

UPDATE---I keep having to replace the REAR wheels on my car.... the wheels are wearing unevenly i took it to a guy and he says the that there is a bar under there that keeps the wheels strait up and that...


Do NOT try and bend them back. There are a few differant "arms" under there. I'm gonna guess and say you have bent the tracking arms while hitting a curb. (thats the most common thing) Good luck and don't forget to get a 4 wheel alighnment after it's all fixed up!

Hydro planed and rear wheel hit curb, bent in 45 degrees


on rear wheel drive the hub and bearing assembly is connected to an axle.the axle will have to be replaced more than likely.in a front wheel drive with independent rear suspension,an upper and or lower control arm and hub.either way is expensive and your insurance deductible will be alot cheaper than the 2500 to 3000 dollars it will take to repair it.

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).
