It is NOT a indepensant front end though, it is a primative knock off
called the TTB (Twin Traction Beam which is basically a D44 with a
pivot hinge in the middle of it) and wildy changing camber angles and
funny tire wear is its trade mark due to design limitations. ANY time
the suspension deflect/ moves up or down the chamber "angle" or
wheel will change a lot. It is not at all like a true IFS that GM
uses and even ford finally give that design up quietly recently too.
The only "cure" there is for that problem is to trash the front end
and replace it with a solid front axle or live with it.
