Alignment & Suspension Facts
We know all our customers are not completely knowledgeable about the intricate workings of a car. And the same questions about Alignment and Suspension work seems to arise every day. So, we’ve put together a few facts about alignment and suspension below.
Why and when do I need a wheel alignment?
Alignment by its basic definition is making something even. Your car’s alignment needs fine tuning periodically and sometimes is needed after an accident. It’s ideal to have your cars’ alignment adjusted fairly soon after replacing your tires. What it does, is it extends the life of your tires and creates a more pleasant riding or technically speaking, steering experience. Our technicians are highly qualified to determine exactly what is causing the alignment to be off register. We look at more than just the camber, toe and castor settings in order to determine and resolve your alignment issues. Ideally, you should have your alignment checked twice per year.
How do I know if my car is in need of suspension work? And what exactly is it?
What gives the driver control over their vehicle is the suspension system. As your wheel moves it encounters smoothness and bumps in the road. A properly set suspension will not only protect your cars’ frame from the force or shock of the bumps, but also will provide a less bumpy experience for passengers with the added measure of safer handling for example, as when a car transfers it weight when making turns or maneuvering rough roads.
