I was changing my oil today when I noticed that my passenger side rear tire had some negative camber, it is the only one with it, but it made me worry because I am about to make a 2800 plus mile road trip, and did not know if it would affect the car, I have noticed that it sounds like my rear end is rattling and figured it was my suspension, but never had it checked out seeing as I paid $150.00 for the car and I did not want to drop $700.00 plus into it. I took it to a mechanic, and unfortunately he was about to close shop, I told him about the issue and he went to my car shook my back tires and there was the rattling, he said the struts are shot and it would not make it on the trip. My question is this, if I do go ahead and, against his advice, drive the car, what is the absolute, worst case scenario, of something happening due to driving with bad rear struts, lower stability and control, or dropping my axle? Anything helps.
have the same problem?
