Problem with rear Suspension IX35 Hylander

4yo Hyundia IX35 Highlander rear suspension has sagged causing uneven tyre wear and possible spring? replacement. This seems to have become apparent since the last service (45k) (Now done 55k) We're in our 70's and recently completed a 1000k trip to Qld with app 30kg of luggage in the back. Surely this weight would not not have been the cause? Anyone had a similar experience? Thanks for your help

Could be the rear shocks, but if you read the owners book. they don't suggest having heavy loads. 30kg does not seem like a lot. have you tried an 4 wheel alignment. first they can tell you if it needs one. second if there is a problem they should tell you what needs to be fix.

I have had to replace a front tyre on my 2011 ford kuga. The tread on one side is 4.5mm the new tyre is 8mm. can this cause any problems. The tyres are both the same make and size.


Not really. But the new tire will wear down faster on the same as the old. You need a front end alignment. Could have worn out suspension parts also. Both will cause uneven tire wear.

What makes the rear wheel lean inward on a 93 Buick regal?


Your rear springs are probably the cause. Over time the springs get weak and cause the rear to sag. If you have independent suspension, which the 93 does, it will cause the tires to lean in a little. This will also cause the tires to prematurely wear on the inside. I think that car has leaf springs not coil springs. Your shocks are probably shot also, but that would not make it sag, that would just make the car very bouncy.

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

What to do when the steering wheel pulls to the left while driving


Three common faults here are;
1) Steering alignment - if the front tyres are wearing on the insides then the wheels are facing toe-out. If on the outsides then they're toe-in. The only way to really get them aligned properly is by laser light at a garage. Cause can be altered ride height, mounting a kerb badly, wear in suspension.
2) Worn part in the suspension system, most likely a suspension arm bush or ball joint has deteriorated, uneven and/or premature tyre wear suggests this is more likely the cause.
3) Uneven tyre pressures or sizes. If a tyre is down on pressure or one wheel is oddly sized then you can get a diagonal pivot effect accross the car's chassis, causing it to pull to one side.This effect can also happen due to a broken suspension coil/leaf spring for the same reason.

Yes there is adjustment. You need to get the alignment checked out. It could be worn bushes and/or damage to the suspension linkages and struts.
