Tires squeeling

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of a front end rebuild ans so far I have replaced the all of the tierod ends torsion bars and strut rods. I am going to take it in for a alignment but before I do I have a question.

 

When I installed my torsion bars I tightened them until I got the ride hight where I want it ( about 31.75 at the lip and about .5" at the upper bump stop). But now when I go around turns at around 40 mph or more my tires squeal really loud.

 

So my question is that will a alignment fix the problem or should I back off the T bars a little? I really dont want to as now the truck is level and everything. Any advice would be great.

 

Thanks

Slow down in the corners ;) it's the design of the IFS, when you're in a corner your front inside wheel leans WAY in like this --> / or this \ depending on which way you're turning So just the inside edge of the tire is literally dragging on the ground...

Alignment will help but its ifs and as u corner they will be like / / this or \ \ that but the toe is what gets messed up when you crank...along with camber so it should help a lot with the issue...also if your locked they will chirp...also how bald are the tires

You probably just need an alignment and new tires. I had the same problem once.
