I have been having a some issues with my 02 xls. 200k miles. It was wandering while freeway driving so i had all front ball joint and tierod ends replaced both reat lower bushings and toe links rear struts and stabilizer links. When i hooked up the trailer today and drove 6 miles the wheel had extreme camber out of alignment. When i got hone and disconnected the trailer it was still out. After going to the store for a new jack it looked good. Like it popped back. I know the upper rear ball joint is squeaking but i cant find any signd of major sloppiness. Do the upper control arms carry that much weight thinking i should just replace but im stiil confused by what could cause the wheel to angle out like that.
