If I understand what you are saying... You went by Mack they told you to fix one problem instead of identifying everything wrong with your suspension.


That's basically it, and then when I replace the cradle bushings, come back for them to then 'continue' the diagnosis.

Well from this it looks like toe wear, same u indicated before. Had the same wear on a pickup and it turned out to be camber. So i guess when its on the machine you'll know


My left front tire is cutting the same way, looking like toe wear, when it's actually a camber issue, from what my suspension tech told me. Apparently the previous owner replaced the camber bolt with an inferior one. So from my little knowledge, there's that bolt and a missing flange bolt to replace, two big cradle bushings and I'm hearing a CV joint making some noise. Align and then I'll be looking for two tires for the front as the back ones are still in excellent condition.

I'm not sure if Mack call themselves suspension experts... And a visual inspection does not and cannot give you the entire story of your suspension.
I had a full alignment done on my first vehicle but Mack only to find that my rear trailing arm bushing and two front upper control arm bushings were busted .... But looking at it you couldn't tell.
What told me something was off was that my caster on one side was out and I found that there were two left hand upper control arms on my vehicle... And if you changing parts on one side the other not too far behind... And persons rarely change good parts. Impossible to see that they were busted unless they were removed

Hope you get through.

Thanks man and sorry for the little mix up. W.r.t. the changing parts on one side, I've experienced that with a bad shock already on a previous vehicle so I learned my lesson there :lol: thanks for the reminder, I'll replace both CV joints one time. As for the tires though, both in front will be changing; most likely going back with Maxxis.

I saw a good bit of them by the tyre shop in chaguanas after opposite chaguanas auto supplies (john street)
You can probably check them.

How come you need 3?

This is not a very popular size, not just in trinidad but in general. Check tirerack.com and you will see.
I have a set of these on MT Side biters that were brought in by Tools and Things on fb. The KO2's are hands down the best all terrains I've ever experienced

Guys,
I can’t seem to decide between:
Toyo Open Country A/T, Bridgestone Revo 2 AT & Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure with Kevlar for my Hilux 265-65-17.
Anyone has experience with these in wet conditions and hard cornering? Also which has the most comfortable ride and best tread wear? Thanks.

Goodyears are awesome all rounder. Toyos really good on road, not sure about off but they wear down pretty quickly. No experience with those Bridgestones but the KO2 is the best tyre I’ve used yet

How you import them?
Air/sea?

And how are the savings vs local purchase?

Company of FB called Tools n Things brought them in for me. Local purchase for my size isn't available so I really can't say but I believe Lyden had told me around $2500 for the KO2 in 15"
If I calculated correctly I paid less than $2,000 each for mine in 17"

on my second set of Sailun Atrezzo SVR-LX
http://www.sailuntires.ca/PLT/SVR.html

bought a used set 305/50/20 when I upgraded to 20" rims just to see how the ride quality was, instead of buying new 20' tyres and possibly not liking the big rim ride
the used set I bought was kinda beat out, but I squeezed 6 months outta them and the f&^king tyres perform wayyy better than my Firestone Destination A/T. Sailun was holding the road real good in the wet, even with low treads

went and bought a new set from racetrack $1000 ea

You know you are comparing an SUV tyre to an all terrain tyre right. Just as good as it works on road it will fall down even faster when you go off it.... But with 20's I doubt you doing much off-roading...
