Tire/Rear Axle question....out of alignment, rear axle "turned". (Thrust Angle)
OK...here's the deal.
2" coil lift, 1" BL, 1" MML, 32" BFG AT
My tires were wearing irregualry, and the toe-in trick didn't work.
I took it to Sears (have alwyas been good to me) and they indicated the rear axle was off center. (not left to right, but cockeyed). Imagine taking your hands like the touchdown signal to represent the wheels and **** them both to the right - that's what it looks like as I'm told.
On the rear end, the "Thrust Angle" has a specified range of -0.25" - 0.25". Mine was/is at 0.29/0.30 inch.
He said that I'd likely have to take it to a body shop that has a frame-straightener to get this fixed.
Truthfully, I have no idea.
-My questions are,
-Is this something that I need to worry about?
-What exactly do you think this is going on?
-I don't know how this happened...I'm assuming off-roading.
-Does this have anything to do with me lifting it?
-Is this something that this guy is BSing me about?
-Can I just leave it? Is this something that will cause excessive wear - on tires or suspension components?
-How exactly can I get this fixed, and how much am I looking at?
Thanks all....I'm in the dark about this one.
