Does Your Car Need an Alignment?

Did you recently hit a pothole and feel like your car is pulling to the right or left? Does your steering wheel vibrate more than usual? You could need a wheel alignment. With an alignment, your car’s wheels and axles are adjusted so that they help your suspension work correctly. Your suspension will be adjusted according to specific angles called toe, thrust, camber, and caster. These affect your car tire’s movement and positioning.

It also depends on what type of drive train you have. If you have a front wheel drive train, then you will receive a front-end alignment. Otherwise, you could receive an all-wheel adjustment if you have an all-wheel drive train. There are standard angles that each car manufacturer will provide that ensures your car stays in line according to specific degrees. If your car is out of alignment for an extended period of time, it could cause problems for your suspension.

You can have your vehicle inspected and aligned quickly in our service department at Wagner Kia of Shrewsbury located in Shrewsbury, MA.
