As of yesterday my rear tires are sitting inward at the top. Also my rear passenger tire seems to sit an inch closer towards back door than driver side..Any suggestions?

Check for rust damage where the rear subframe bolts up, or where the other suspension parts bolt up.

Jack it up, grip the wheel at 9 and 3, and shake as hard as you can. Do it again at 12 and 6. If there's excessive play anywhere, find the root cause.

In addition to the above shaking recommendations inspect the condition of the upper control arm as well as the lower arms and ball joint

Drive over any rougher roads than normal? Take an off-roading excursion? Not saying you did but just don’t want an oh-by-the-way moment.

Wife finally decided to tell me what she did. So looking further I found this bad boy.

I haven't put it on stands to get a good look to see if anything else is damaged. Will soon. Hoping to replace the part and get an alignment. Hopefully nothing else is damaged

Check RockAuto to see if they stock replacement rear trailing arms. That’s a pretty hard hit

Yeh sounds about right. Backed out of a drive slowly, bumps against curb so im assuming she gunned it to get over curb (tight space so needed more room) at that point hits a short capped concrete wall/barrier from some sort of really old retainer wall.

Part is $72. Not too bad but worried I may find other damage once I get fully under it. Yeh hard hit for sure

Lol, glad it's a relatively harmless hit and easy fix. Maybe you can barter this into the wife baking you a pie.


But again, where's ol' timey radio host @xGS to say...




Good day.
