View Full Version : major camber problem

05-09-2003, 11:09 AM
ok, so a couple months ago, i hit a curb goin kinda fast(not what i'm here to talk about) Anyways, it messed up my alignment bad and there's a major pull to the right. I have replaced the tension rods since then. There is tire wear halfway across the tire!!

What could I have messed up? The dealer won't help me because I don't have power steering, and don't care to have it. Thanks..

did you get an aligment
check your lower control arm

you might have frame damage if it still pulls to right after alignment and parts are replaced.

camber doesnt kill tires

toe does

im sure you are excessive toe in/out

camber is not very adjustable stock, so you tweaked something REAL GOOD to get horrible camber.

the dealer won't align it b/c i don't have power steering, and they want to replace all of my PS components, but I know it's not PS related. lower control arm eh? thanks..any other possible ideas? every bolt is pretty much torqued to specs, so i don't think there's any looseness in the suspension.

i dont think you understand

they'll take you for all you go
power steering HAS NOTHING to do with your alignment!!!

if its front
its your
lower control arm
tension rod

so go replace your lower control amr

if its camber, then its probably your shock or shock towers

if you dont understand, take it to a mechanic.

ok, so...the control arm can cause it to pull that much? I'm not doubting you, but was just asking again. thanks for your help.
