To determine the exact fault, as well as why this has occurred, the vehicle will have to be inspected first hand. There are too many possibilities, and too many components to inspect, to speculate without seeing exactly what you have. If you want your vehicle’s suspension inspected by a certified Mechanic to determine if there is misalignment or worn or broken suspension components, please request a suspension inspection and the responding certified Mechanic will get your concerns addressed and get the necessary repairs implemented. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
