worn springs change camber and create tire noise??
Hi, out of left field, but I am at wits end. We have a 2007 R 320 with OEM rims. Left front wheel has hummed like a truck tire for as long as I can remember. Dealer has "tried everything" over the years with no success. Even have new tires and nothing. Could this be a camber issue?? Never been in an accident, but who knows what pot holes wife has gone over in 7 years. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Also in the last alignment they noticed ride height is off, suggesting one or both springs are worn which could change camber, correct? Thoughts? Is it worth replacing springs or just deal with noise? I guess I am worried about cascading issues (bushings, bearings, etc), uneven tire wear, etc.
