I am running 31's on my 84 bronco. I have noticed that the inside of the passenger front tire is wearing alot. All the other tires look good. Anyone have any thoughts what may be the cause. I need some place to start. Thanks!

Check the camber adjustment. Ask your local 4x4 shop where a good oversize tire alignment shop is. They will be able to help if you can not adjust the camber yourself.

31's aren't really oversized - they're only about 1/2-1" taller than stock for an '84, and they were stock on later Broncos & trucks, so any alignment shop should be able to handle them. But not many will work on the TTB front end, especially older ones (like pre-'87) that didn't all have replaceable camber bushings. It takes an alignment shop to measure the angle to get the right bushing, but I think Ford only charges about $80 (plus parts) to do the whole job.

First thing to check in this situation is the radius arm bushings at the frame brackets. I went for an alignment, and the man said the bushings needed replacing. I changed them, and when he checked the next week it did not need any alignment changes at all. Two years ago, and it wears the tires very evenly.
