Outer tyre premature wear

Recommended Posts

Got checked my car and mechanic replaced inner cv joints. My front tyres got very worn outer side only.

Mechnic told me i needed to replace lower inner Control arm bushes. Quoted for $380 for both

. Im thinking of just going to wheel alignment. Does the control arm bushing needed to be replaced so the tyre wear would be avoided?

Also said that got leak in my struts front. But can wait for a year for replacement.

Is the price good for $380?

Should i go for vushing replacement? Or just buy new tyres and gamble for the wheel aligent

If your front shocks are leaking that means they are buggered and not performing. Leaving it a year could result in an accident. As for the bushes, the lower control arm bushes do fail and will cause premature tyre wear. Outer edge wear could be alignment or could be lack of rotation or even under inflation. The mechanic knows best and I suggest you listen to him. As for prices, depending on whether he does both lower control arms bushes on each arm, or just the rear bush on the arms and whether he's included a wheel alignment in the price.
