    Okay so i have a odd problem with my 2002 Sequoia. My driver side front tire wears faster than my other tires. I recently put new tires on the truck and want to make sure i dont have a serious issue, however i had to rotate them already when i noticed a rough "edge" in the tread from not wearing smooth.


    The confusion is i have had my alignment checked 3 times now at different locations and everyone says its great. Additionally the when i changed to these tires, the old ones were not wearing odd on the tire. to elaborate, the tire is wearing EVEN across the width of the tire but faster than the other three.


    Possible problems:

    i have noticed a unstable rebound when going down the higway and catching a decent dip in the road.

    My front strut on the PASSENGER side has a noticeable dent in the lower casing.



    any help is greatly appreciated, i know the truck has the stock oem suspension from 2002 (132 k miles) so its looking like i need to go to the store and get some struts/shocks. I am driving cross country (nearly) to Yuma AZ in 3 weeks and would prefer to have this fixed before then.

    Not sure if it necessarily is the cause of the tire wear, but if you have an unstable rebound, definitely look into new shocks.

    i actually thought about some kinda resistance as well, but it does spin freely as the others, additionally with resistance would also come pull to that side or at least in theory
