tire wear droplinks (pics) suspention Q&A
bit long winded may as well tell all
now then i knew i needed tires for a while i know they worn-out funny and didn't really give a toss as iv had them for ages, the plan was stick on 2 used tires run it and see how there scrubbing
(the old tires were worn as follows passenger side on the inside and driver side on the outside)
"had to go with this cheap option as hadn't kept my eye on them for over a year or so and wanted a fresher set of tread to see what whats"
when it came to them fitted to the car it pulled to the left noticeably,
previously was tracked long time ago "2 year prob" and got the feeling was going off but not as noticeable as now it more annoying,
Had it tracked (not laser but the older style mirrors (as i know the bloke at the garage) for now so i could have look while the wheels were off and took some pics and save spending)
after a drive its exactly the same as before the tracking when the "new" tread was put on so that's ruled out i guess?
and iv got what a can try describe as a hop to the side a speed (did do that when i first got the car full balance and tracking sorted that but as said the tires still must have worn funny) and i did i bit of reading on here and its to be expected the steering usually find it was off after a certain amount of time and that the car has no adjustable camber
just prior to the tire change as you guessed it i have the squeak when i turn full lock
not a knock a more like squeaky brakes I'm guessing those dropink perished rubbers
i did get a advisory on passenger side "suspension reduced damping effect" but that was one mot prior to the last one and i never got that advisory this year?
1) but would that cause the stated type or tire wear "example if it was the other damper would the wear be vise versa" be very useful if someone could work that out as the inside tire wear on that side seams to be correct "inner edge"
2) now next ill have the front wheels off but how far am i expected to go replacing the front components wishbones/arms and rubbers obviously,
3) waisting my time then with wheel balance for now aren't i as all so feels like nearside wheels have too much balance
4) 4 wheel alignment tracking how important is this to a traditional method as i said when the steering wheel is centre the car strays left slightly then quite badly like the nearside wheel have too much balance as above
it not the end of the world but im right starting with someone in the know looking at the droplinks balls joints etc, right~?
i'm not lazy i'm thinking
