Front end problems

I noticed that the front driverside wheel/tire on my 96 F-250 4x4 tips inward when parked level. I jacked it up and tried to wiggle the wheel assembly and it seems tight but the bushing where the diff. piviots seems to have play in it could this cause this to happen? I thought it was ball joints but now Iam not sure, has anyone ever changed out this bushing? Thanks

When I had my 95, I had to have the "I" beam bushings replaced for that reason.

I went to a front end shop today and the tech said it probaly was the I beam bushings. It doesnt look like it is too hard to change them. Has anyone changed them and what did you use to remove and replace the bushings.? Thanks
