    why do my tires wear out quick

    i had my front end alligned right before i tore my motor apart and the guy said he had a hard time alligning it due to needing new bushings. which bushings is he talking about? on the control arms? my tie rod ends are new. the tires wear out on one side and wear out quick.

    the lower control arm bushings wear out. not too hard to replace. will need another alignment after you replace them as that's where the adjustment point is located at.

    Sorry to interject here, but I know I am due to swap my bushing out, any idea on cost and a good brand to go with, or just get OEM ones?

    Get the Moog replacements. They are a rubber with less air voids similar to the 1LE bushings.
