SOURCE: THE FRONT WHEELS ARE BOTH

Most common problem is excess ball joint wear, it's best to have a mechanic look at it to confirm. It will probably need ball joint and an alignment.

It sounds like either you had a balljoint fail or your alignment/steering has had a serious failure.... did you hit or run over something before the problem?

The other possibility is a broken tie-rod end. Normally, this would not result in the wheel leaning on top- it would be sideways.

Either way, DO NOT DRIVE IT! this is SERIOUS and needs to be fixed ASAP! You can LOSE CONTROL without ANY WARNING!

This is a job for a trained mechanic and please...I beg you...get it TOWED and dont try and drive it!!!

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Why does my front passenger tire lean outwards at

The most common problem would be a bad lower ball joint. It could also be bad control arm bushings or a combination of the two. Neither is an expensive repair. This should be checked out and repaired soon as it could cause control issues. Hope this helps.

A suspension part has come loose or is worn out. Check the top strut mounts under the hood. There may be a rubber plug to remove to see the top mounting plate. The three nuts around the perimeter of the strut plate are the mounting nuts, not the larger center nut-leave that one alone-it is for keeping the strut from coming apart.
If that mount is good, check for a broken coil spring around the strut.
Keep looking for the problem. If the tire leans out that bad, you should be able to spot the problem. Raise the wheel off the ground (recommend jack stands or blocks so it won't slip off the jack), grasp the wheel and shake it back and forth while watching for looseness or noise on the suspension parts connecting to the wheel hub at top and bottom- the upper and lower control arms and the strut connection.
Good luck.

F-150 Front end grinding


if its coming from your front tire more than likely it your front wheel bearing.

jack up the front end and wiggle the tire at the top and bottom. if it wiggles around in the hub, (Not the suspension) your wheel bearing is worn out. you will also probably notice your tire is leaning in or out not straight.

Abs light come on and 4wd light flashes


check your front wheel bearings by jacking up the front end of your vehicle and trying to wiggle the tire at the top and bottom of the tire. If the tire seems to be jiggling a little bit at the hub; not the suspension or steering, your wheel bearing needs to be replaced. If it gets really bad you can actually see the wheel inverted or the top of the tire leaning towards the inside from the front of the vehicle.

when your wheel bearings go the sensor in the bearing goes off and the abs light comes on.

Good Luck

I just got my hands on a 95 Pathfinder. The front tires have a lot of wear on the inside edges. I was told by seller that this is caused by driving on pavement in 4WD. As this is my first 4x4, I wasn't...


I'm guessing the lower ball joints are shot. This will cause the tires to lean in on the top and and wear the inside of the tire. I could be wrong! Try jacking the front wheels up and support the vehicle on jack stands, now grab the tire top and bottom and try to rock it in and out. If there is movement, you will have to have someone watch to see what is moving, while you rock it. If it's the ball joints, they will need to be replaced before you can align it. This can be spendy, there's a lot of labor involved.
