Hey guys I finally bought another car after so long and as you all always say I will probably sell it in a week, but who cares :flipoff2: ANYWAYS it's a 1988 Isuzu trooper II and it's a pretty cool truck, but I'm noticing alot of camber on the front driver side wheel...the top of the wheel is leaning inward and I dont know what it is. I'm assuming it could be tie rods, an axle, loose lug nuts...if anyone could lend me a hand to help me figure this out. I'm willing buy someone lunch or something along those lines, I just really dont want to drive it somewhere and risk doing more damage or tearing something else up. I will post pics in a little while.

OK so here an update, I jacked the trooper up and I could actually move the entire assembly the tire and even the brake disk moved with it, but nothing else...any ideas.

did you see movement in the ball joint? if not it maybe the wheel bearing assy.

if the brake assy is all that's moving and on the upper suspension then its probably the hub bearings, i believe those have real hubs and on the the unibearing we are all familar with


mac 'but here i am trying to diagnois over the internet' gyvr

I'm here in Waynedale and my guess was the hub bearings too, but I'm going to tear into it tomorrow, if anyone wants to give me a hand I will be happy to accept the help... :tu2:
