Front End Alignments /
All Wheel Alignment
Winter and Spring are a dangerous time for your wheels. The roads are filled with pot holes that formed over the winter and have not been repaired yet. Hitting these pot holes can cause you wheels to become misaligned. If you know you have hit numerous pot holes, or you car seems to be pulling to one side, don't wait, getting your alignment now could save you lots of money in the long run.
Wheel alignment is the adjustment of caster, camber and toe in angles. The alignment of one of these angles affects the other two angles. On strut systems, there may or may not be provisions for the caster and camber adjustments. However, toe angles are adjustable on most systems. Toe settings are the most critical tire wearing angles. The purpose of toe is to ensure parallel rolling of the front and rear wheels, but if either wheel has too much toe-in or toeout, the tires will sideslip. This results in a featheredged scuff across the face of the tire which causes premature tire wear.
- Depending upon your vehicle type, we can perform front end alignment or four wheel alignment.
- Adjust alignment angles to vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.
- Inspect steering components for wear or fatigue, cracks or possible bent conditions.
- Check tire pressure, current tread wear patterns and overall condition.
- Center your steering wheel to vehicle

An easy way for you check your tire waer is to stick a penny upside down into the tire tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s hair, the tread is worn down too far and your tires should be replaced.
