What is a Wheel Alignment?
Alignment refers to a series of adjustments on a vehicle’s front suspension and steering components to make sure the vehicle steers and handles correctly. The key to proper alignment is adjusting the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road. Adjustments will be made to get the appropriate amount of camber, caster and toe.
Why would you need to get an alignment?
It’s very common for vehicles to get an alignment after service work has been performed on the front suspension. Replacing things like steering joints, control arms, and shocks may require an alignment afterwards. Hard off-road driving may also cause the suspension to loosen up and need to be re-aligned.
