Wheel Alignments

Your vehicle drives better when all the wheels are pointed in the same direction. Wheel alignment services keep your vehicle moving in a straight line, by precisely aligning the front and rear wheels.

All the wheels on your vehicle should point forward, but over time, one or more will lose alignment.

When this happens, your vehicle will start to pull in one direction and create premature wear on your tires and suspension. Basic wheel alignment service should be done regularly.

Things like driving on rough terrain or hitting a curb can cause your vehicle to need wheel alignment service more often.

An Alignment Check Features:

  • Assessment of the steering and suspension components
  • Examination of the tires for size, inflation, and wear
  • Comparison of your tire alignment to automobile manufacturer guidelines

How are Wheel Alignment Services Performed?

Wheel alignment involves the adjustment of a vehicle’s suspension. Your vehicle is hooked up to an alignment machine that is linked to a computer, which then takes precise measurements.

Adjustments will be made to the various suspension angles known as toe, thrust, camber, and caster. The wheel alignment machine will adjust these angles so that they are set to vehicle manufacturer specifications.

Signs of Misalignment:

  • Excessive or uneven tire wear
  • The vehicle pulls to the left or right
  • Steering feels loose or wanders
  • Steering wheel vibration
  • Steering wheel is not centered when the vehicle is moving straight ahead

Common Causes of Wheel Misalignment:

  • Everyday driving, but factors such as hitting a curb or pothole can alter it dramatically.
  • Worn suspension parts
  • Being in an accident
