Some of the things that can cause your alignment of going out of specification are:
- Hitting pot holes
- Bumping into a curb
- Regular bangs and bumps of rough roads
- Worn steering parts
- Slack in your suspension
All of these can add up and eventually cause your vehicle to be out of alignment.
We measure each wheel’s angle and alignment, that measurement is taken and compared to factory specification. Adjustments are made to bring your alignment to its original setting. While the vehicle is on the alignment rack, we diagnose steering and suspension components for damage or wear as well as the tires.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
