Tires and Wheels problem
1991 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual
I drive a toyota corolla XL wagon, 1991 model. It uses leaf spring at the back and the shocks are automatic, I have used two set of back tires in less than two months and this is not supposed to be so. The tires wear quickly and I noticed that when ever I am driving and I drive into a small pothold or over a stone the two back tires sway to the side and I lfeel the car shifts too. Please what could be the cause of this? Please write back.
so do you think it has nothing to do with the leaf spring? I checked the two shock absorbers and I found out that when I exert a force on them one is working well and the other when pressed down it doesn't return to its normal position. Is it advisable to use a fairly used shocks? Most new parts here are china inferior products, so they don't tend to last as compared to the used ones. Please I need your response and if there is any materials you can help me out with I will be extremely grateful. Thanks again
How are you doing and how is work going for you? Please I would like to ask if it is possible to change the leaf spring and the axle attached to it to a spiral spring type. Please I would like to know if this is possible? But the limitation is that they will have to drill holes and weld for this to work. Please I will like your advice on this? What are they positive and negative effects? Please reply?
