Maintaining the factory specified suspension setting will make your car safer and easier to drive. Steering pull, unsteady or loose steering, or hard steering can be caused by misalignment conditions. A properly aligned vehicle can save you money! Misalignment conditions can cause greatly accelerated tire wear, poor fuel economy, and excessive wear on other suspension parts.
Whenever you impact a curb or pot hole hard, the alignment should be checked before unusual tire wear is detected, (edge wear, diagonal wear, cupping wear) which may result in premature tire replacement! Steering or handling problems such as (loose steering, steering wheel off center, steering changes direction after hitting bumps), should have the alignment checked as a part of the diagnostic procedure.
If your tires are wearing abnormally, alignment should be checked to find out why. Chances are something is amiss and needs to be readjusted or replaced. It only takes a little misalignment to cost you money down the road!
The installation of new tires or the replacement of worn suspension parts should always be accompanied by a wheel alignment to help protect your tire investment. Checking the wheel alignment as a part of routine annual maintenance can significantly increase suspension parts and tire life, saving you money!
