3 Answers

the reason they lean is it is 4X4,if your tires are wearing on eather side it needs a alignment.


Yes. A four wheel drive vehicle like an explorer will have the rear wheels tilt in a bit. This is called "camber". It aids in handling and quite honestly, helps the truck from rolling over as easy. My explorer is built the same way.


It could also be your wheel bearing(s) depending how durastic the tilt is on the wheels.
