Alignment Technology

How High Definition Digital Imaging Wheel Alignment Works
Your shop uses four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted on each wheel of your car. The aligner uses this information to calculate your car's current alignment measurements and then compares these measurements to the car manufacturer's (O.E.M) specifications. If your car's wheel alignment is outside factory specifications, the aligner provides the technician with the exact information needed to make the proper adjustments and return the alignment angles to the manufacturer's specifications.

What Everyone should know about wheel alignment….

  1. Reduced tire wear: Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. Many tires are replaced prematurely due to adverse wear.

  2. Better gas mileage: Gas mileage improves as rolling resistance is minimized. Total alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper inflation minimizes rolling resistance.

  3. Improved handling: Does your car pull to one side? Do you have to turn the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment service.

  4. Safer driving: A suspension system inspection is part of the alignment procedure. This allows worn parts to be detected before they cause costly problems.

 

For vehicles with non-adjustable rear suspension

  1. Alignment angle readings are measured at all wheels.

  2. The steering wheel is centered.

  3. Adjustable front wheel alignment angles are referenced to the rear thrust line and set to the vehicle manufacturer’s specification.

Result - all four wheels are parallel to one another and the steering wheel is centered.

For vehicles with adjustable rear suspension

  1. Alignment angle readings are measured at all wheels.

  2. Adjustable rear alignment angles are set to the manufacturer’s specification. (Rear thrust line corresponds to the vehicle centerline).

  3. Adjustable front wheel alignment angles are referenced to the rear thrust line and set to the manufacturer’s specification.
