A Crucial Element of Vehicle Maintenance
Maintaining proper wheel alignment is a crucial aspect of vehicle maintenance that vehicle owners often overlook. Poor alignment can cause serious damage to your suspension components and result in uneven tire wear. Even worse, these issues are often not detectable with the naked eye.
How Does Wheel Alignment Work?
Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of the wheels to the manufacturer’s specifications. To achieve proper wheel alignment, a qualified technician will use specialized equipment that utilizes mirrors or lasers to take measurements of the angles of the wheels. These measurements will then be compared to the car’s recommended alignment settings.
If the measurements are out of specification, the technician will make the necessary adjustments by moving suspension components in and out to achieve the correct alignment. The lasers or mirrors on the alignment rack track the changes and ensure that the wheels are aligned correctly.
By ensuring that the wheels are properly aligned, the vehicle will handle better, the tires will wear more evenly, and the risk of suspension damage will be reduced.
