Hi...
On your Celica.
Check if the Strut is NOT bent.
Or if the car was not involved on accidente on the front.
Check the Comdittion of the Lower Ball joint, LOwer control arm.

Check if the Camber in your car is adjustable.
Removing the Tire and removing the Bolt that hold the Strut in position. If the Holes in the Strut are Like Oval, is adjustable.
But if NOT. Some Autoparts SELL a Camber kit. That include
New bolt and washers.

But if you Don't want to spend money on the KIT.
Remove the Tire , Remove the 2 Bolt that hold the Strut.
And make the Holes A little oval the holes .
Move a little at front and rear. For make the strut adjustable.
POSITIVE or NEGATIVE..

Ok I hope this help on your problem...
Thank you for use fixya,,,,,,

On my 2000 sierra the front passenger tire leans inward on the top n there is no brakes what can it all be


did you hit a curb or pot hole on that side? this can cause the leaning wheel. also if the camber shim or adjustment is loose will cause it also. no brakes sounds like a brake fluid leak if you talking about the same side or if its both sides it could be the master cylinder.

How to adjust camber


move the top of the wheel inboard or outward. Positive camber is moving the top of the tire inward. Negative camber is moving the tp of the wheel outward. If you have shims add or remove then in pairs
front and back. With Struts raise the vehicle till the tires are off the ground. mark the strut at the cam bolt for a reference. Loosen the nuts and move the wheel. The angle changes when the wheel is off the ground.

Alignment


Cam is the degree that the wheels lean out (positive) or in (negative) at the top of the wheel in the straight ahead position. It is adjusted by either moving the top control arm in or out or the bottom arm(Ford falcon) in or out . In a McPherson strut Where the pivot goes up into the mudguard into a rubber bush at the top) it is adjusted by rotating that rubber bush. It has to be done on a wheel aligning machine or rapid tyre wear will result.

Both front tyres have excessive wear after only a few thousand miles on the insides. Appears to be similar rate of wear on each tyre. Tracking adjusted last service, so unlikely to be that. Any ideas?...


I think a real good place to start would be to have a front end alignment, and struts and springs checked. Most alignment places will check front end all over before performing the alignment, to insure that it isn't worn parts causing the problem, as well as insuring that you aren't driving under dangerous conditions. Your problem could be as simple as a camber adjustment to correct negative camber.( tire is leaning inward at top, which causes tire at road surface to run on inside of tread.) Weak struts and springs are also a consideration, especially if still original on a 95' vehicle.
Here's a link that explains alignment pretty well to help you understand.

Back right wheel tilts inward. strut broke or bent?


It could be a damaged strut but if it hit a curb it would more likely tilt out. Some of those had an eccentric bolt that allowed adjustment of the camber. Have a tire shop look at it and determine if a bolt has come loose and allowed it to slip.

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).
