Wheel AlignmentWheels are a critical aspect to driving that most of us take for granted. Misaligned wheels can cause more than just tire wear. While it's often referred to as "alignment" or "wheel alignment", it is really complex suspension angles that are being measured and a variety of suspension components that are being adjusted. This makes an alignment, an important suspension-tuning tool that greatly influences the operation of your vehicle's tires.
MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
Out-of-alignment conditions occur when the suspension and steering systems are not operating at their desired angles. Out-of-alignment conditions are most often caused by spring sag or suspension wear (ball joints, bushings, etc.) on an older vehicle. They can also be the result of an impact with a pot hole, curb, or change in the vehicle ride height (lower or raised) on any vehicle regardless of age. Incorrect alignment settings will usually result in more rapid tire wear. Therefore alignment should be checked when new tires or suspension components are installed, and any time unusual tire wear patterns appear.
Alignment should also be checked after the vehicle has encountered a major road hazard or curb.
Wheel alignment is considered by routine preventative maintenance and here at Vorderman Motor Werks we have the alignment racks, equipment and expertise to correctly determine your alignment and adjust accordingly.
