Do I Need a Front End Alignment?
Does this scenario sound at all familiar? You are driving down the road and your vehicle keeps trying to pull you either to the left or to the right. You get out at your next stop and check your tires, they are inflated to the correct pressure and all looks well from the outside and you swear that road was pretty straight. If so, chances are you need a Front-End Alignment service performed on your vehicle to get it driving correctly again.
What Does a Front-End Alignment Fix?
Your vehicle relies on an accurate alignment of the geometry of your vehicle’s front suspension system that is in charge of turning your vehicle. When your front-end is properly aligned, all 4 wheels on your will turn in unison, providing you with a smooth ride that keeps your vehicle straight like an arrow even if you let go of the steering wheel for a few seconds assuming everything else is also in good shape and the road isn’t too warped or curved. A technician will adjust your 2 front wheels’ caster, camber and toe – three variables in charge of keeping your wheels facing dead ahead and correctly aligned with everything else that’s moving on your vehicle.
What Will Happen If I Drive With Poor Alignment?
Driving a vehicle with bad alignment for too long is definitely not a good idea. It will put extra pressure on your vehicle’s systems resulting in poor performance in several areas. If you leave it unattended for too long, you will likely begin to experience difficulty braking properly, poor fuel economy, irregular wear and damage to your tires, vibrations or shaking while driving (especially at higher speeds) and / or reduced handling.
