Premature tire wear

The insides of rear tires are wearing, like negative camber wear..
I'm thinking auto leveler on the rear.. Any other ideas?

get an alignment. It's most likely the wheels are toe'd in too much.

And make sure you have a before and after print out. And don't go to a place that uses the "string" method either.

does it have the air bags in the rear? only the rears have this issue or all 4 tires? i think it's suspension. i think the ones with sport package have air bags that fail.

Yes it has bags. I'm Thinking they are starting to leak. I'll measure heights at the start of the day and the end. If they leak, can anyone give me a loan? Lol

All 4.4 have bags, some 3.0 sport have bags but pretty rare...

You mean toe out

Toe out = inside
Toe in = outside


If you were looking to race the vehicle you actually do want more of either depending on what you want. Toe out will give a quick turning reaction while toe in will make the car more stable but be careful with the out, makes the car less stable at speed.
