I have a 2000 maxima that had a flat this morning. I took it in to get patched, and when they put it up on the rack noticed the tire was basically torn up of from uneven wear on the inside. Probably due to the way out of whack alignment the car had.
The thing is that I took it in to be aligned a few months ago, but didn't feel like the shop had done anything when I left. : X
Well today, I also saw it was leaking power steering fluid as well. Not gushing, but leaking. I have two questions:
1. Do I have to replace the whole steering rack to get rid of the leak?
2. Could this leak have been caused by the poor alignment like the tire wear was?
