Well fix the lean in issue wayyyy before messing with the tie rods. If you touch the tie rod's then the alignment is definitely off. IF the wheel is "leaning" that will cause the alignment to be off, but could be fix just by getting the wheel strait. I can't believe you still haven't fixed that. Does the wheel wobble if you grab it and move it? Seriously fix it first, this can cause other issue like brake problems and other parts wearing out quickly.

Well if you don't fix it you'll be at work when it breaks....then how will you get home? I'll help you figure it out. I'm still thinking it has something to do when you had that shop work on your spindle. They didn't tighten something right or something. I'm thinking it's the center nut for the CV axle. If it's not tight it will make you tire lean. The nut is what sucks it up to the hub.

I have a legit question.... You still work at dominos right? If so I know they don't schedual more than 40 hours a week to people who arent AM or GM unless you're buddy buddy w/ the GM... Most people get <30/week so... even if you did 40/week you'd still have like 84 hours a week free.... take 8 hours a day for sleeping thats like 48 hours a week to do w/e..... how do you not have time? o.O

I work 40 a week and I have plenty of time to do whatever :o time management son!

You'll need an impact to tighten the nut with along with a gigantic 32mm socket. I have both , lets see what's happening on Sunday, who knows maybe we'll have time to look at
