Wheel Alignment

Let’s talk – Wheel Alignment                                                               by Ute Lindner                                                                                 

Ever wondered about Wheel Alignment? 

Before becoming a part of The Auto Station team, I never even knew about wheel alignment. And when we got our Hunter Alignment machine I was curious what it did and why it an important service.

Signs of Problems

If you feel your vehicle pulling to one side when driving

If your steering feels unstable or you feel a vibration

If your tires are wearing unevenly or squeal on turns                       

          Uneven tire wear  

          Fatigue while driving - keeping the car straight

          Increased fuel consumption


How it works

During a 4-wheel alignment a technician measures and corrects wheel angles so they're set to vehicle manufacturer specifications.

Ensure proper placement of weight around all tires and rim assemblies

Completely inspect steering and suspension systems

Adjust wheel angles so they’re perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other




Most manufacturers recommend getting a 4-wheel alignment at least once a year. Other times you may need a front-end or 4-wheel alignment include:

After purchasing a set tires.

After a collision, accident, or hitting a large pothole

When replacing suspension or steering parts

When noticing above mentioned problems
