Jim, I immediately thought "alignment" after reading this. I know other things can play on adverse tire wear (under or overinflation, etc.), but I'm betting it's the alignment.guinnessjim wrote: i had my tires rotated yesterday and there is a TON on wear on the insides of rear tires.
Right, and did they do an actual alignment then to find that out? Did you get a printout as proof?i went back to the dealer that aligned my truck after the OME suspension and laid into them. well....long story short, my alignment is fine, according to the dealer.
That's not surprising. Of course they want to take the easy way out by blaming it on something (OME) they have no accountability for. I can't remember my measurements, but I do know that one side, either front or rear, was also a bit off from the other. Did you measure it yourself to confirm their findings?they say it is the suspension causing the problems. they also said that the rear passenger side is >0.5" higher than any of the other points.
Blink can probably offer the best advice since he installed his OME all by his lonesome. We aren't talking that many parts, and they are all pretty ovbious as to where they go-even to a blind mechanic. The only iffy parts are on the fronts. Since you say the wear is on the rear, I'm still going to say alignment. You have a shock and coil in the rear, and I can't see installing a shock wrong otherwise you would have heard/noticed something strange. Maybe one of your coils isn't seated fully? I highly doubt that considering the weight that is pushing down on it, but you never know. I'd say take it to the shop that installed the OME & have them put it on a lift and have a look, preferably with you alongside them. If nada is found, maybe hit up another alignment place?1) installation was done incorrectly and something is off therefore i neeed to take it up w/ the installers
2) the dealer doesn't know who to do a proper alignment (although the numbers looked good) and i need to go somewhere else to get it checked out.
Typical...in other words..."We are too dumb or lazy or both to figure out what your real problem is...so we are taking the easy way out and...Oh, look, you don't have stock suspension...yup, that's what the problem is."guinnessjim wrote: my alignment is fine, according to the dealer. they say it is the suspension causing the problems. t
