Im sure that my rear wheels angle are strange...what you think

My vette acts strange...
when i hit 45 mph and i accelerate,i feel like someone pushes the car
to one side as it accelerate,when i stop doing this,the car moves to the opposite...i inspected it today and found this ...
i did a exagerated Photoshop to explain better
Im sure the angle its strange,and the tires are wearing more from the center,if i look the car from the tail,im sure the wheels look like the photo i did,and the angle its strange too,like i did on the aereal picture
like the wheels are both looking inside and also.they are not straight...
both pictures are the way i see the car,exagerating
what's wrong with it ?
can i repair it ?
i hope nothing's bent
thanx !

shane, it's not ball joints and it's not bushings.

a common problem with the corvette IRS the stub axels in the center section will wear aginst the spider cross shaft. when this happens the top of the tires will lean in and toe in as you show in your pics. to check jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and have someone push the top of the tire in and out and look for the stub axel moving in and out of the center section.

the fix---> replace the stub axels, have fun with that, you need to disassemble everything. the stub axels are held in by snap rings inside the center section which means you have to get inside there.

Calderone, any chevy dealer can get them, corvette vendors online can supply them, try WWW.bairs.com, they are a great corvette parts supplier. i see your in chile so i don't know what you have locally.

by the way, this will also cause the rear wheel steering problem you describe also so i'm pretty sure that is your problem, it's a pretty common problem on corvettes.

it's a pretty big job to replace them but it's not complicated--just grunt work.

no problem colderone, i don't know what year your C4 is so i don't have a part #, plus you have to know whether it is a stick or an automatic. the sticks come with dana 44s and the automatics come with dana 36s.

bairs also sells on ebay, get their phone # off the websight and give them a call, i'm sure they can fix you up.

cool, how many miles you got on that puppy, i have an 85 with 187,000 on the clock and it still runs like brand new. i had to rebuild the TPI last year.

i am not affiliated with bairs in any way, just a customer. i recommend them because their prices are way better than some of the other vendors, plus they seem to deal with more serious parts and less fluff.

colderone, yeah i'm on the corvette forum. techron was taken so i'm mechron over there. the C4 section is cool, darth vader, agent 86 and some others are a wealth of information.
i had to rebuild my TPI because i filled up at a gas station that had a load of rusty water in the tanks--man, that rusty water will really mess up your fuel system!!! i had to replace the fuel pump, filter, clean the gas tank out by going in through the top once the filler neck was removed, wiping the rust out with paper towels. i rebuilt the TPI with a AFPR, a rebuilt cold start injector, FMS 22# injectors and i glass beaded the plenum, runners and intake and ported them according to (i think, maybe) vaders websight. it took like 2 months to do all the mods, but who cares-i just drive a beater in the winter anyway.

now days i hang out in the CF-C2 section because i'm doing a body-off grand sport C2 replica (the C2 forum woild just call it a fake, and i would get called out fortrying to pass it off as the real thing).

anyway, check out CFOT, you will laugh your behind off. those guys are crazy, bucky threadkiller, petew, jamie slick, ammo bob, utah 997 with his crazy underground theater and a bunch more.

the photochop guys are insanly funny and insanly tallanted.
