EA Balljoints

ive got an EA II and constantly even with wheel allingments every few months the car is chewing the outside of the passanger tyre. The middle and inside have 1/2 to 3/4 tread and the outside is amost bald.

The car has a camber kit installed, yet the front bushes are shot. Could the worn bushes be a factor towards the damage to the tyres? Worn/damaged ball joins have allso been sujested as the problem.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.

Ill take it as a complement i think.............

if your suspension is not in good nick then you will wear tyres no matter how much you align it.

also you may be driving to quickly around corners - the faster you go the more outside tyre wear you will get - after (or at the same time) you get all your worn bits replaced i strongly reccomend lowering your car...give it about 2 degrees negative camber and you will have no troubles
