Alignment Check (Align1)

$60.00 Each

The alignment check is offered to ensure the vehicle is running true. If there are adjustaments to be made, we will proceed to perform the alignment and apply the cost of the check to the full alignment.Our state-of the art alignment equipment allows us to quickly and carefully check a vehicle's alignment. We install the sensor pods and will provide a print out of your vehicle's specifications within a few minutes. We can then assess the readings to see if a full alignment is needed. There is no charge for an alignment check and saves you thousands in preventable tire wear.Alignment refers to the adjustment of a vehicle's front and rear suspension parts. If your alignment is off, your vehicle isn’t safe to drive. View the animation below to understand the three main adjustments made during alignment:CasterCaster is a bit tough to define. If you’re viewing the side of a vehicle, the caster angle identifies the forward or backward slope of a line drawn through the upper and lower steering pivot points. Think of a motorcycle and its front steering forks and front tire. Its angle is towards the rear of the motorcycle, so it has positive caster. Negative is just the opposite. Long story short, positive caster helps your vehicle go straight, much like the motorcycle.CamberCamber is the angle of the wheel, in degrees, when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Positive camber is when the top of the wheel is leaning out from the center of the car. Negative camber is when the top of the wheel is leaning into the car. If the wheel leans too far from the center, uneven wear will occur. (However, negative camber helps racing cars improve cornering.)ToeToe is the difference in the distance between the front of the tires and the back of the tires. Usually, tires are set so that they are parallel with each other. If the fronts of the tires are closer, the wheels are toe-in. If the rears of the tires are closer, the wheels are toe-out.   Daily impacts such as potholes and railroad crossings, as well as more severe circumstances like a car accident, can knock your vehicle out of alignment. You should have the alignment checked if:   +You’ve hit something substantial   +You see a wear pattern developing on the tires shoulders   +You notice a difference in your vehicle’s handling
