rear wheel
« on: August 30, 2010, 07:05:18 PM »
Just bought a 350 and noticed the right rear tire has a sag, for a lack of a better word, tips out like a irs on a vw so much that the nuckles are hitting on the outer u joint, and the wheel rocks back and forth when rolled, is there an adjustment that will stop this or maybe the shock is shot  any help would be great, thanks in advance.

The short upper link is adjustable isn't it?

Check to make sure the axles are both on the transmission stubs completely....Next would be to look at the rear end where those short links bolt on and see if it is bent...Have you checked the wheel bearings in that side?
