With 230K miles on it, last Fall I had the front end of my 1999 Siverado rebuilt. New upper arms, lower ball joints
, inner/outer tie rod ends, bushings etc. It drives straight ahead just fine and doesn't creak and groan when driving in a parking lot BUT it now scrubs the tires when turning hard as in parking. Three alignment checks in two different shops find no problems but I can tell that the tires are taking a beating from the scrubbing. Have also verified that the front 4WD differential allows each front wheel to turn when the other is held. At this rate, the new tires on this truck won't last 5K miles. Ideas?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I'm working with the mech that did the rebuild but he is out of ideas.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?
Customer: Can't think of anything pertinent. The front end had gotten drifty before the rebuild and feels tight now but now it has this issue with turning.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
