kjeeper10 Hard to tell. Camber will be off on the alignment rack.

doclouie Yea I would check the ball joints on that side. Most shops will do a alignment spec for free and give you a print out of what needs changed. Just on a side note I would rewind your winch cable if it still looks like that.

Never mind, he answered that. I have BF 35's and exhibit some of the same driving characteristics. Tires look ok but rotated sooner than normal.
The jeep does favor the left.

Balljoints are new. I am guessing a possible bent housing/ C knuckle,
Is there a way for me to look at the jeep and see if something is bent? What should I look for?

calebjmcgowan Can you see in this photo how only the front right tire is off camber?

kjeeper10 Too much toe in and the tires would look like this

Out \ /

So any wear would be both tires.

When going down the road does the steering pull some to the left?That would confirm negative camber on the right wheel. The Camber is none adjustable so I would say that you either have worn out ball joints allowing the tire to tip in at the top, or your axle housing is bent.
Wouldn't the toe cause it to feather on the inside? If it were only the one tire? I'm only 17, so I'm still learning.

SweetTeaDrinkerTJ98 Sounds like it needs aligned, your tire would be towed out. Check the balljoints.

PStov98TJ Check the pressure in it as well. They should be running around 24-26 psi for on road usage.

calebjmcgowan Can I simply replace one tire (the bay worn front right one) and align it, of should I do something more onto of that, as my jeep is really rough and is all over the road...

Tire Wear Problems

My front right tire on my 2001 TJ is worn really badly. I bought the Jeep used recently and it has BFG 35's on it, and the other three tires seem to be fine. What would cause that one tire to wear on the inside of the tire and how can it be fixed?

Thanks
