PostSubject: Serious alignment issue need help!!   Sat Apr 27, 2013 7:24 pm

Still got the winter beater tires on the caddy. Today, well actually for like a week Ive noticed on the passenger side front wheel it's really going bald on the outside edge of that one tire. The drivers is doing it a tiny bit but the passenger is basically a slick on the very edge. This is the SAME side ive had 2 broken lower ball joints, a broken upper ball joint and a broken outer tie rod.

I assume it's a positive camber problem (not caused by the air bags since it's only one side)
But could it be bad toe on that side? How do I adjust to fix this?
Turn the tie rod out?
Bad wheel bearing?
I have no clue!
Nothing is making any noise. But I do notice the cars wheel looks weird when I turn the wheels toward the pass side.

Car was in a collision YEARS ago. Think its an F'd up frame?

Pics:

Wear:


Tires straight with car at FULL up (never drive this high unless I'm avoiding something massive in the road)
It also appears to be negative camber here which doesn't seem like it would wear the outside of tire.


Tire at half up. Steering wheel straight inside car. Typical driving height. (maybe a little higher than usual)


Anything quick I can adjust or look at before actually bringing it for an alignment?
Wanna mount summer tires but don't wanna burn through them in a month.

Go get a free alignment check at any of the major chains. They'll show you the specs where it's out.

I'd guess it's toed in on that side.

Thanks Bill. I'm gonna seeif I can get it in this week.
Any specific height I should have the car at for alignment?
What do you static height guys do for alignment?
If I wasn't working tomorrow id be at the meet swapping tires out and messing with the damn thing.
