What do you mean by "the c's behind my wheels"?

I've heard of many types behind the wheel

😂

Timothy,

Those "C"s are actually often referred to as the axle housing "C"s. They hold the ball joints that the steering knuckles attach to and rotate upon for turning. They are meant to lean in somewhat. They were designed and manufactured to be that way. The amount the tire leans in is called camber. The front wheels on the XJ have a slightly negative camber (as many vehicles do). The larger the tire, the more you are apt to notice it.

Unless the vehicle has been jumped or damaged, they are likely just fine.
