What Everyone Should Know About Wheel Alignment
On this vehicle, the front wheels are not aligned to the rear thrust line, this shows incorrect wheel alignment.
This can happen from normal wear and stress, whether your vehicle has adjustable or non-adjustable rear suspension.
To steer straight ahead, you would have to steer the front wheels slightly to the right. A common result would be that the vehicle would “dog track” and possibly “pull” to the side. Of course, the angles are exaggerated so you can more easily see the condition. But it takes only a small misalignment to create problems.
Why Four Wheel Alignment?
Reduced Tyre Wear
Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tyre life.
Less Fuel Consumption
Fuel mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheel parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.
Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car travelling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.
A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.
