Q: Tire leaning in

asked by on

someone borrowed, returned w/ my rear wheel leaning inward at the top, struts repaired&still leans? Advised control arms aren't damage. It makes an aweful sound when you drive it. Also the steering wheel stays at about an 60° angle when driving straight.

My car has 148000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

This is an obvious damage to the spindle in the rear or the upper control arm. Also alignment is out causing the steering wheel to be off center. You should have a 4 wheel alignment check to isolate the bent components.
