Q: Tire not aligned correctly.

asked by on

The left front tire is tipping inward at the top.

The upper and lower ball joints on these vehicles are known to go bad. The tire leaning in could be either one or both. The only way to check is to have an inspection done by a mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic.
