Thanks for your post johnson,
when I make a sharp left the tire squeels and feels like hell.

The tires I had eaten away were worn on the outside and inside of the tire. The center was hardly worn.

I thought maybe it might be the fram as well. I had a nova that I had jumped a rock by accident,( acident my a**) I wore away tires like crazy on that thing, but only on the right side.
Funny thing is, befor I hit the cider block, ( It was early, dark out, the thing looked like a orange cone, there was someone in the other lane- could not swerve) the firebird didn't wear tires, sure it pulled to the right more than I wanted, but it was not that bad.

I checked the wheel bearings like that. it has a 1/16 to 1/8 inch play. Very tiny. I figured this was normal.

The shop guy said that I had too much negative camber and my castor was a little negative too.


I will have my frame checked before I go and put new spindles on it, thanks.
