Steering issues

I have a Husqvarna LGT24K54 mower. The front tires are wearing funny and the caster and camber are both way off. one tire is straight and the other is cockeyed and they both tilt in. is this normal or should they be straight both ways. And what could be the cause of this is it the spindles or drag links? Is there a way to correct this or what parts may need replacing?

If the wheel wobbles on the axle, the bushings are probably worn out. My experience is the factory bushings on those tractors are pretty cheap. Packing them full of grease is a temporary solution, but might get you through the day. Replace the bushings with bearings, like these, should solve your problem and last much longer:



Just make sure your wheel is 1-3/8" and a 3/4" axle. Good luck!

bushings in the wheels are bad and need replacing

also check the spindle shaft at the bottom, if you see a notch or groove then they need replacing

taryl explains it here

im not sure about his solution personally, i think i would replace the spindle arm and new bushings for the wheels to go back oem setup unless those bearing things he used are just as cheap to buy

one day when you are bored go watch a bunch of his videos, he makes you laugh and teaches you just about everything on anything lawn mower related you might have questions about

You can only learn if you ask the question, so there are no dumb questions.

Its not the bushing in the wheels. Is it possible that the spindles were for the wrong sides, or the drag links are not correct?
