Wheel Alignment Explained

Our technicians consider the kind of vehicle you drive to determine the proper technique for wheel alignment service. An all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive with an adjustable rear suspension needs to have all the wheels aligned. Others typically need only a front wheel alignment. Regardless of what type your car needs, a wheel alignment orients the moving parts by squaring the axles and wheels. A mechanic adjusts the major suspension angles of camber, caster, toe, and thrust. Once the wheel alignment corrects problems with the angles, the car's steering is straight, the steering wheel is centered, and the wheels move as intended. Our technicians take your car through these careful steps to ensure that you get back on the road with optimal control and safety.

The Need for Alignment

You avoid situations with your auto whenever you can, but sometimes dangers are unavoidable. There are deep potholes in the road (that you didn't see in time), the enormous speed bump down the street (that you forgot about and hit too hard), and fender benders (not your fault). Perhaps you just want to get a fresh start when you purchase new tires. No matter the reason, you can actually recover the cost of a wheel alignment in money saved by extending your tire life and increasing fuel mileage. You will also decrease the likelihood of needing costly repairs later. Additionally, proper wheel alignment makes your travels smoother, more comfortable, and safer. If you suspect your car needs alignment, call Mesa, Arizona's Friendly Auto Centers at 480-830-9377.
