    The thing to check for is rust inside the rocker panels.
    Not good minus a frame.
    Also, subframe attachment points usually are rusty.
    never let rust form between the chassis and the subframe bushing.
    Oh, there is no subframe?
    Well, what do I know.

    well it doesnt really matter, he says everything u need to know. pretty much if the lines dont stay align the whole time then its bad. just move the rotor back n forth to check it….

    My tires are wearing out really fast, could that be because I have a bad tie rod?

  9. dtrip09 says:

    if your tires are wearing out you need an alignment

    sure the video is bad, but he clearly explained how to do it, he even said what he was doing when he got in the way of the camera . Bad job on the cameraman lol but the video itself serves its purpose.

  16. spidledl says:

    @brizzx32 the vehicle is out of alignment, but if your tie rod ends are bad, or your ball joints are bad, they will tell you at the shop when you go get it alligned. You cant allign a vehicle with any worn parts.
