Don't think you need to ask about that

You know something is bent or not right,
pertaining to the front suspension

I would not even use the vehicle until resolved

What does it mean when your front wheels are not parallel? Driver side points straight forward and the front left points a little to the right.


It means that your front end is out of alignment. The front wheels should be adjusted so that both point slightly inwards at the front of the car when the steering wheel is straight. This is referred to as "toe-in." The reason why cars and trucks are aligned with toe-in is because the wheels go to a straight position when traveling on a highway due to the road resistance pushing the tires back. What you have is a "toe-out" condition which will cause the tires to wear faster at the side adjacent to the back of the wheels. Have your car aligned to avoid such uneven wear.

Figure out why my car is wearing the outside of my tires . ihave to put new ones every 6 months


Too much toe in adjustment. The tires are pointed toward the center, I use an expandable retractable tent pole, with normal weight on the tires I check as high as possible without obstruction against the rim evenly front and back same distance from the ground and try to get as close to zero as possible. When there is the same amount of resistance without the length of the pole being changed when held against the rim on one side and brushed across the rim on the other end of the pole first checking the front of the front rim from side to side then the back of the front rim side to side you should see a great improvement in tire life if you have to lean one way or the other slight toe in is better than toe out. I try for zero running radial tires. Keep the pole level and straight as possible.
This should be done with the tires pointed as close to straight line forward as possible while the entire weight of the vehicle rests on the tires. I like to sight down the sidewall of the tire from the front of the vehicle looking toward the rear axle to determine if the tires are pointing straight. I measure adjustment against the rim to avoid differences in tire lettering. There are more ways to do this measuring but this is the only way to do it one manned that I know of without an alignment rack. The rim should be very true running when spinning on the spindle but even a bent rim can cause this method to be inaccurate. If a bent rim is all you have then you must just pick one spot on the rims and then rotate it to the front measure then to the rear then measure.

Vibration between 55 and 65 mph


I am a minor shade tree mechanic here so this is just a guess. It might be a front brake rotor, a break pad caliper that has a sticky hydraulic piston, front wheel bearing, or something else. Look at the pad and rotor wear for it possibly being a break system issue. Not sure, if you do not have a solid front axle look at the inner part of the wheel under the vehicle where the ball mates into the socket for any wet fluids or unusual gunk or build up around the axle and break calipers for a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end and make sure you chalk the rear tires, vehicle is in PARK and the steering wheel is unlocked as to where the steering wheel can be turned if needed. After vehicles front tires are off the ground try to pivot the front wheels to point in a different direction left turn or right turn. This can be tried by physically grabbing the tire trying to move the tire to point left or right. If the front tires are able to be pointed in a different direction without the aid of the steering wheel, then it could be a wheel bearing issue or a more serious issue. Hope you can make sense of these instructions, and hope this helps you find and fix any and all existing problems you are having with your vehicle.

I have trouble steering...the truck wanders over the road...i have replaced idler arms, pitman arm, center link, shocks, brakes, new tires, front end alignment, bearings...the right front tire sits...


when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

Also, thanks if you can mail to me a diagram of the position of the directional wheels system on my very loved mighty max 88 pick up...


if you are talking about directional tires. The tires will be marked with arrows if they do not have arrows they are not directionals. you want the arrows pointing the way the tire rotates in the drive position. EX: front right tire if the arrow was at the top of the tire you want it pointing at the front of the car
