It's called negative camber. You'll need your wheels aligned if you model allows it. On some front wheel drive vehicles the camber cannot be adjusted indicating something is worn or bent. Good luck.

If you loosened the strut bolts then you have to take it and have it aligned because it will wear the inside of your tire real fast

I have a 1989 ford f-250, when i have it going over 40mph it starts shaking like if my tires were about to fly off,any idea what can be my problem


Could be a few things, warped rotors, u-joint, upper control arm. Best thing to do is take it to an alignment shop. They will not align it if something is bad on your chassis or front end until you get it fixed. Good Luck

91 ford ranger ext cab pickup pull driver side tire brake caliper slides in out and hub does to


If the hub is coming out the whole assembly needs replaced. The hub is the part that has the studs that anchor the wheel when you put the lugnuts on. The caliper should be moving freely unless the anchoring sleeves or slider pins are damaged. If the caliper is still anchored to the backing plate then there would be no issue with the slider pins.

Loud popping noise


when you changed the hub assembly did it come with a new wheel bearing? jack the vehicle up and move the tire up and down and then side to side and check and hear for play on parts if there is play in something then that is your problem to me it sounds like your inner tie rods does it pop on both ends ?

How do I change front hub and bearing assembly on 2004 Explorer


Front hub bearing, remove tire, remove caliper and caliper holding bracket, you do not have to remove brake caliper from brake hose, just set it aside, if 4X4 remove front axle nut that goes through center of rotor, also remove brake rotor, disconnect elec, A.B.S connector, remove three bolts on back side of hub bearing, remove hub bearing, some times you will need to knock hub bearing out with a hammer.Reverse to install new hub bearing.

Grinding noise driver side front at low speed . have changed hub assembly goes away for a little while then comes back . can spin the hub and dont feel like bearing is bad. really getting to me


Did you recently swap tires from back to front. I had very annoying wheel bearing type noise and the tires were not noticeably worn (Bridgestones) but apparently some wear pattern was causing my noise. Swapped them back.

How to change stud in rear wheel hub assembly. i need to know how to change the stud in the rear wheel hub assembly, and how do i go about taking it apart


Remove tire and wheel, remove caliper and brake rotor. DO NOT apply the brakes while the caliper is loose. Hit stud you want to replace hard with a LARGE HEAVY hammer to drive it out towards vehicle. DO NOT use a light hammer. It will distort the stud and possibly mushroom the end making it very difficult to remove. Once the stud is loose, you may or may not have enough room to get it out of the hole. You may need to pull the hub loose from the rear suspension to gain more room. Remove the stud. Place new stud in hole. Put a stack of washers over the stud, grease the threads, and using a new FLAT nut with the same threads as the lug nut, tighten until the stud is pulled all the way into the hub. Remove the flat nut, reattach the hub assembly (if you needed to take it loose) and reinstall the brakes.

I have a ford f 150 4x4, that the Passager front tire can be moved up and down a little, took off tire, can move front end. Is this a wheel bearing ? How do you get to the wheel bearing ?


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.
