Tire Wear Caused By Worn Front Thrust Link Bushings on Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the front thrust link bushings cracking and causing excessive movement in the suspension. The thrust link bushings are fluid-filled (to help reduce vibration), so if they crack, they will leak oil.
