   My rear tie rods have been replaced twice each because they seem to go bad within 18 months of replacement (says something about replacement parts OEM and Mayle).  so I know the adjusters are not siezed, I trust my mechanic he's my friends father and is really helpful but does not seem concerned with helping fix this.  Car to my knowledge has not been in an accident but it looks like orange peeling on roof and a paint line, but body lines up and it has been inspected by body techs.  

I dont know if the pass tire sticks out farther or if its just the tilt of the driver side wheel, I will need to measure (and post results)  but the pass wheel seems more inline with the front wheels.  driver wheel definantly looks funky to the naked eye.  I'll also check the sub frame mounts, how do you check the sub frame alignment?


  when measuring cross lateral distances in suspension should I go from struts or multiple points?  i will also check the camber degrees with a level.

thanks for the ideas, will post next week when I can get back to the car at the shop
