Keeping your car’s wheels in proper alignment is crucial to its overall performance and operability. Driving a car that is out of alignment can result in a number of serious problems, including uneven wear on tires, difficulty steering, and permanent damage to the power steering system. If you frequently hit potholes or drive over curbs, or if you simply drive your car often and subject it to everyday wear and tear, your vehicle is at risk of developing improper wheel alignment. Fortunately, Lynn’s Auto Services is here for residents of Murray, UT and surrounding areas. Our wheel alignment services will keep you on the straight and narrow for years to come!
How do I Know if my Wheels are Out of Alignment?
Most drivers can tell that their car is in need of wheel alignment services when they begin to experience any of the following symptoms:
Pulling to one side of the road when steering wheel is straight
Vibration in the steering wheel, especially at higher speeds
Resistance when steering
Though these are some of the common signs of a car with improperly-aligned wheels, the symptoms can sometimes be so subtle that a driver won’t initially notice, which can lead to bigger problems down the road. By scheduling regular maintenance checks as outlined in your owner’s manual, you can be sure to stay on top of your car’s alignment for smooth sailing throughout the life of your vehicle.
What Happens During a Wheel Alignment Service Appointment?
When you bring your vehicle in for wheel alignment service, the technician will first inspect its suspension and steering systems. This includes checking the air pressure and condition of your four tires. Your car will then be placed on an alignment rack, where laser sensors will measure its alignment and print an initial assessment. Based on the alignment sensors’ findings, the service technician will adjust the camber, caster and toe angles to be in accordance with manufacturer specs, and print out final alignment readings. To ensure that everything is in order, the technician will take your car for a test drive to look for any additional problems before calling you to let you know the alignment is complete.
