Default New guy!!

I'm new to the Ranger world!! I bought my 2006 ford ranger tremor about a year ago and i love it. I havent had much problems other than having to replace both front wheel bearings. I do about a 40 mile commute to work everyday. My latest problem is my front tires couping. I found the problem when i got them rotated last. three out of four are wavey on the inside edge of the tire. the front drivers side tire is the worst, so that leads me to belive that the problem has been around for awhile, and the problem is on that side. i have heard that it could be a few things causing the problem. could be the shocks, balance of the tire, not being rotated enough, could be the upper and lower ball joints. Is this a persistant problem among ford rangers? Can anyone help diagnose the problem? Is this something that i need special equipment to fix, besides alignment?? If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated. thanx for letting me be apart of the forum!!

Welcome to the forum!

As far as the tire cupping, are you at stock ride height with stock tires?

Post some pics!

Check ball joints. If you have cranked t-bars that will lead to decreased ball joint life.
