Re: Ball Joints on 1995 90 Q Sport

I couldn't help but eavesdrop on this thread.  I too have a '95 Sport 90
(but alas, not a quattro).  I just had the tires rotated at 33k miles (I
have had the car for the past 12K miles) and the insides of the treads
of both front tires were worn moreso than the outside.  My initial
reaction is that the front wheels have too much toe-out and I plan to
have an alignment done within then next week.  Would ball-joints cause
my problem?  Enquiring minds want to know!
