An out-of-alignment vehicle is harder to steer, stop and operate safely, and can wear out your tires faster. An alignment check can uncover these issues, and correcting them can get you back on the road safely and comfortably.
What to look for
A sagging suspension caused by worn out coil springs alters your alignment which can make the car harder to handle, and worn out shocks can cause “dipping” or bouncing.
Premature tire wear
When misaligned, your tires can wear out unevenly, possibly leaving the tread worn down on one side. This wear and tear can shorten their lifespan.
Worn or damanged tie rod ends
If it feels like your wheels are not following your steering wheel, you may have loose or damaged tie rods.
Worn or loose wheel bearings
Worn out wheel bearings can cause your vehicle to wander or pull, which may reduce your ability to steer, and create unsafe driving conditions.
