Leaf springs can be weak in that side I've also seen the bushings in the mounting points of the leafsprings wear out causing a slight lean.

My van shimies left and right badly....and it pulls to the left....it does it more when going straight and not so much when going around curves


check the vans rear shock absorbers if they are faulty the car can exhibit this type of behaviour and braking will be less efficient. Also tyre wear will be affected to.
I am not a shock absorber expert but had recently my four shock absorbers replaced as the fluid had ruptured in the front shockers and the rear mounts for the rear shockers were corroded and unsafe. (shock absorber expert at repair place mentioned the symptoms you are describing as a rear shock problem or the rear leaf springs are faulty)

What makes the rear wheel lean inward on a 93 Buick regal?


Your rear springs are probably the cause. Over time the springs get weak and cause the rear to sag. If you have independent suspension, which the 93 does, it will cause the tires to lean in a little. This will also cause the tires to prematurely wear on the inside. I think that car has leaf springs not coil springs. Your shocks are probably shot also, but that would not make it sag, that would just make the car very bouncy.

I got a GMC Sierra with a 350 engine and a 7r400 transmission. My issue is when I turn left and right or go up hills my transmission has issues shifting. Transmission good its been removed and checked out....


okay the transmission is probably fine ,,,but if you are having these problems like this have your trans axles checked out ..anytime you put the vehicle in a bind that creates hard shifting you are heading for expensive repairs ..Have the ball joints checked as well to see if all of this smooths the transmission out ..It could be something simple ..also remember that a faulty steering can cause this

I have a 19 89 Chevrolet Astro Van and Veterans Hospital (VA) installed a 2'' hitch, and a Swing Away for the Harmar AL301XL Fusion Lift exterior Platform. All this is for transporting my Permobil...


check with your local auto parts store. They should be able to get you a shock called a load leveler. It will be a shock that has a coil on it. I have installed several of these on astro and safari vans to help with trailer towing. I know Monroe makes these and are the better shock manufacturer in my opinion.

They will look simular like this

My 94 aerostar ext leans to the right at the rear of the van.


The rear right suspension needs to be checked. The shokers may have gone or if it has leaf springs that may have straightened out due to load or may have broken. Check and replace.

My 1991 4x4 nissan pickup leans to one side the front passenger side it has new shocks what could be the problem


Shock don't have any thing to do with ride height. It should be a coil or leaf spring, or on some vehicles, a torsion bar, that keeps it level.

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s


I usually charge a base price on shocks and struts.to change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.

2005 chrysler T&C leaning in rear on passenger side


Yes it could be. The ride height sensor could be faulty. Try to add some weight to that side to see if it compensates, if it doesn't more than likely it's bad.
