Wheel alignments are the specific adjustments made to your vehicle’s suspension to optimize ride, handling and steering characteristics. Each manufacturer specifies precise settings to achieve the maximum performance from their vehicle.
Whenever you impact a curb or pothole hard, the alignment should be checked before unusual tire wear is detected, which may result in premature tire replacement. If you experience steering or handling problems, such as loose steering, steering wheel off-center, or steering changes direction after hitting bumps, you should have the alignment checked as part of the diagnostic procedure.
Wheel Alignments includes:
- Comprehensive suspension components, steering components and ride height inspection.
- Angle readings are measured at all four wheels.
- Rear wheels are set to specification if adjustable.
- Front wheels are referenced to rear thrust line and set to specifications
- The steering wheels is centered
Thrust Alignment includes:
- Same as above plus compensate for rear wheel tracking.
Four Wheel Alignments includes:
- Same as above plus set rear wheel camber and toe-in, as provided by manufacturer
Result: All four wheels are parallel and the steering wheel is centered.
Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheels to keep your car traveling 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. Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of km to tire life. Just as important to tire life, proper alignment also extends front steering and suspension component life.Gas mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheels parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.A wheel alignment should be performed once a year of 24,000 km. whichever comes first.
