I just bought a 2000 2wd ext. cab 7.3 and the passenger side front wheel is leaned in at the top, i was wondering what could be the reason for this.

I found a reciept in the truck for an alignment(didnt pay any attention to the date, but didnt look old), is there anything common on these trucks to go bad after awhile like wheel bearings or balljoints, bushings? it has 225k on it.

I have a 2001. Unless I was mistaken the joints we pulled off did not have fittings. I thought I had read where ford didn't make them greaseable. Might vary by model year.

Not sure. I had mine done at a local shop here in Chattanooga. I supplied the ball joints and he charged my for 6 hours of labor.
