OK i have a 2009 nissan xterra first off I love it, 2nd off i got 2 brand new tires put on the front and the ones from the front put on the rear. Well the tire man told me i needed an alignment bc it was...


I would get a second opinion. Apparently the tire guy may have got the alignment right, but didn't check for loose suspension or steering parts that will cause your problem. Have your inner and outer tie rods checked for wear and looseness. Also the suspension's ball joints.

When you turn the wheel the tires squal. The car was spun around in a accident nothing leaking stearing dont seam to be bent Tires have a tow in on the front.


on fords turning the wheel to extreme will cause a squeal in the power steering, Its been that way for years, if it does it with even a slight turn,, get a front end alignment and mention the problem to whoever it is your having do the alignment

Steering wheel wiggles from side to side under


Bring the vehicle to a repair shop that has a Hunter wheel alignment rack. They will tell you what your suspension needs and do the correct alignment.
Sounds like tires and ball joints, possible control arm bushings . I need to do visual inspection and know make , year and model of vehicle to give a fairly decent diagnosis of your problem.

Hi I had my car on the road for 4 straight years (2004 to 2008)without any problem with the tires until it was observed worn out. Anyhow, I replaced all 4 tires back in Dec 08, and until Aug 09 one of the...


Obviously something is worn,or several things,that are causing the tire wear. You needed to get a start on diagnosing the problem about a year ago. I can not speculate on anything without the vehicle. The first four years,your vehicle was newer and didn't have any significant wear.

I just replaced the inner an outer tierod ends.the steering wont turn back after u make a turn


You need a frontend alignment. If you took off the entire tierod you may have hung the rod backwards and it is catching. When you unscrew the ends you are suppose to count the twists and then replace the ends with the same amount of twists.

If the rod is too long or too short now it will put the tires in a position that is not aligned. You can align this temporarily by straightening the wheel so the tires are parallel. Then measure the inside of the rim so that the BACK of the rims are about 3/8 of a inch wider than the BACK of the rims in the front of the tire. The tires are suppose to travel knob kneed about 3/8" toe-in.

My car steering is pulling to the left i had my tracking done twice yesterday but it went straight back to the same as before it was done?


i'm unsure what "tracking" means but first thing to do is check tire pressure... if that is normal i would get your tires rotated, if the problem is gone it is a tire causing the problem... if problem is still there you know it isnt a tire problem, check brakes when car is in the air you might have a stuck caliper... see if the front wheels will spin easily on their own, especially the drivers side being that is the direction it pulls. if everything is good you probably need an alignment or possibly have bad front end parts... i worked in a shop for 3 years and i have dealt with so many cars that pull one way or the other and nine out of ten times it is a tire problem. how i would check this problem is i would either rotate the tires front to back or i would swap the front tires. if the pulling switched to the right then you have just determined it is one of the two tires causing the problem.. usually buy tires in pairs so pitch em both, used tires arent any good, they came off someone elses car for a reason.....

Shakes and vibration


i had the alignment done about six months ago at the dealership. Would they have been able to align the car if something was bad? Not sure how they deemed the new tires bad, but they said they moved the tires from left to right and front to back and could control the shimmy and shake. this has went on for about a year. I dont believe the new tires the first time were bad, i believe the rim was bent. I dont know what to do. These tires have about 10000 miles on them, have been balanced twice, a rim was replaced due to them saying it was bent, but yet, the vibration starts at about 55 and gets worse as you gain speed. Can even feel it in the passenger seat in the front as well. Steering wheel shakes. You can actually see your hand shake while you are driving it, but then at times, it seems to go away and start again. Thanks for any suggestions.
