WHEEL AND TIRE ALIGNMENT SERVICE AND REPAIR
The contemporary automobile features a smooth, and gentle ride designed to offer the driver and his passenger’s maximum comfort. However, if your vehicle is not offering the same comfort and luxury it used to and is now rattling, vibrating and shuddering along the road, then it’s time you considered alignment services.
As such, alignment is important to keep your vehicle in top notch condition.
Why is Proper Alignment Crucial?
Proper alignment ensures your car is running in optimal condition and affords you some peace of mind while driving it. On the contrary, improper car alignment can be a source of a myriad of issues. For starters, you may have trouble handling the car while driving. Also, if you notice that your tires are wearing unevenly, then having a wheel alignment can save you money and from the driving frustration. Keep in mind that alignment is like a cancerous tumor; even the slightest alignment issue can spread to the rest of the vehicle and accelerate uneven vehicle handling.
The modern suspension systems are designed to allow space for adjustments such as wear and tear, change in tires, manufacturing tolerance, and even minor accidents. However, when there’s an adjustment, it`s possible for the parts to slip away from each other or wear over time resulting in misalignment. Additionally, when a suspension related item changes, such as when a new set of tires are installed, your car`s alignment can drastically change. Regular checkups and adjusting your car’s alignment is an important aspect of keeping your car running safely and economically. When making alignment, your mechanic may be able to align your suspension according to your needs. For example, if you own sports or a high-performance car, a mechanic might improve the handling and tire performance, even though such an alignment might still lead to uneven wear and tear.
People do not realize the importance of wheel alignment and tend to think that nothing much happens to the tires other than the occasional tire puncture. A wheel alignment service entails squaring of the wheels and axles so that they can move in the same direction. It essentially makes sure that the wheels are perpendicular to the road, and that the wheels are parallel to each other. When making wheel alignment, the mechanic takes into consideration the suspension angles (toe, thrust, camber, and caster). The suspension angles influence the tire position and movement.
Keep in mind that the type of car alignment will depend on the type of your car’s suspension. For example, a four-wheel alignment is reserved for all-wheel vehicles. On the other hand, a front-end alignment is for the non-four-wheel vehicles.
