    hi everyone, i have a 1997. e-300 td est car and in just 20,000 miles the front n/s tyre has worn bare on the extreme outside edge, about one inch wide, the offside is ok, and circa 4mm on the rest of the tread depth. so if i was out of track i immagine both front tyres would wear the outside edges and i am aware that this is not uncommon on these cars. so can the camber angle be adjusted or do i need to look at replacing the bottom ball joint. ? many thanks. herbiemercman.

    many thanks for the link trapperjohn, there is a similar place in southport where i had the four wheel alignment done 3 yrs back, it was £25 + vat, a bargain, the thing is all the other three tyres are wearing evenly at 17,000 miles mark and they are 18 inch directional so cannot move them around, but as only one tyre is wearing so badly that is why the camber bolt or bushes on that front n/s suspension must be a probable cause, as you suggest, i will investigate and may try NSG bolton for the four wheel test post my investigation of the components. herbiemercman.
