Default Re: what would cause my front passenger side tire to sit inwards...

my old civic did this and i went to have it aligned and found out the frame was bent under the rocker panel and the entire suspension was replaced on the right side. they told me there was really no way to fix it. if your frame isnt bent maybe just replace the entire right side suspension and see if that fixes it. and it will kill your tires. i bought a brand new kuhmo ecsta tire and had to replace it a month later cuz it was showing wires. finally i just said to hell with it and traded it. lol

If the part of the LCA that goes through bushing # 11 in this photo is bent inward (toward the center of the car), it will bring the bottom of your tire outward and forward, thus making it look like the top of the tire is tipping inward. It may not appear to be bent to the eye. You will need to take some measurements and compare them to the other side.

Deetz is right, but worst case scenario would be you either need to put some money and time into the front end (frame/suspension) or go through a tire like every 3 months and have it look a little off.

in diagram 1, on the top of this page, what if the large part where the wheel bearing goes and the
ball joint connect to was bent? would that lean the tire? oh and i had the tire off today to look
at the pieces in the diagram and the inside is wearing away bad....

It could but in any case bent suspension can be replaced, bent frame rails will many times never be right again.

would an adjustable camber kit (the front one that replaces both UCA) solve this problem, my buddy said it would cuz the +/-4 degrees
would sit the wheel straight even if somthin was bent, which obviously somethin is lol...true or false
?

I believe it is the inner tie-rod that is bad. My '00 civic coupe driver front tire is leaning in like it has negative camber. Alignment guy told me my inner tie-rod is bad so he couldn't do the alignment until the inner tie-rod was replaced. I've gone through numerous tires in the past 1 1/2. So it's time to fix the inner tie-rods and outers while I'm at it.
