A Smoother Ride
Having a bad alignment can lead to a number of issues. Chief among which is excessive tire wear. When the tires are out of alignment, they begin to develop excessive wear around the outer edges of the tires. This wear will eventually lead to the tire becoming bald and can lead to your losing control in adverse conditions. Another big issue is the vehicle pulling to one side or another. The amount of adjustment needed is dependent on how hard you are holding the steering wheel. Lastly, a loose steering wheel will have dire effects on your vehicle’s ability to turn. This is due to the misaligned wheels If this occurs, it is vital you bring your vehicle in as soon as possible to inspect it.
Before our technician does the alignment, they will first perform an inspection and test drive the vehicle to determine what the focus of the alignment will be. If the tire wear is severe, our tech may recommend replacing the worn tires, in addition to the alignment. Once your vehicle is in the alignment rack, the tech will check the camber, caster, and toe of your vehicle. Each of these points will be placed at the best angle to achieve a proper alignment for all four wheels. Once that is completed, the tech will test drive your vehicle to make sure it's traveling straight, and the handling is improved.
