My tempo sits low in the back. The tops of the rear tires are even with the wheel openings while the fronts are 3-4” below the openings. With the front end being higher the front wheels are severely tilted out at the top and both tires are wearing on the outside really badly.
I had a broken rear spring and replaced both with used springs and it didn’t help. Nothing seems strange; the springs and struts are all seated correctly and nothing is rusted or broken or bent. I don’t have a lot of weight in the trunk or anything simple like that. The rear end sag took place over time and didn’t happen suddenly.
Is there something weird about these cars that they do this? Has anyone else seen this problem on a Ford this age? My guess is that both rear springs are sagging badly. Does anyone have another idea, something else I can check? Thanks
have the same problem?
