Re: possible wheel bearing problem?
Might be just real bad toe-in. As a quick check, I'll take a string and tie it to a heavy object (cinder blocks are a backyard mechanic's best friend), bring it across the rear tire and see if it hits on either the front or back of the front tire first. I'll do this to both sides without touching the steering wheel, then get one side to touch off on both sides of one wheel, then check the other. Takes a little patience, but I've actually gotten front ends to an acceptable alignment, but I still take it in to have it checked. Camber's alittle different, requires a really flat, level floor and a very accurate level of the right length.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
