What is a 4 Wheel Alignment Service?
During a 4 wheel alignment, the technician will examine several elements of your suspension and steering systems, including:
- The vehicle's suspension system, including springs and shocks
- Tire air pressure, wear patterns and overall tread condition
- The angles of each tire and any uneven wear and tear this may have caused
Using sensors, the technician will measure each of these elements to see if adjustments need to be made.
Why is This Service Necessary?
Though your vehicle may start out perfectly aligned, over time the normal wear and tear of driving can lead them to move out of position. It's important to monitor this and have a professional re-align the tires to avoid damage to the vehicle and prolong the life of the tires. If you put off having an alignment, you may notice the car pulling in one direction as you drive. You may have to overcompensate by steering the car in the other direction or driving slower than usual. As the issue grows worse, you may feel the car bumping or vibrating, especially as you try to drive faster. If the service still isn't done, the tires can wear unevenly, causing damage to the wheel components underneath. If you don't take your vehicle for regular 4 wheel drive alignments, the tires can wear unevenly, leading you to need to replace them more often.
