A wheel Alignment is when the angle of the wheels is adjusted so that they are set to the car maker's specification. The purpose of these adjustments are to keep the wheels straight, parallel to each other,perpendicular to the road and their respective axels to provide the least rolling resistance, friction and tyre wear. There are a few things which knock your wheels out of alignment: driving over potholes, curb impacts, driving on rough roads, as well as general wear and tear. All of these can cause the wheels to become knocked out of alignment over time. Luckily a wheel alignment is a relatively painless process. Bring your car into to Coogee Auto and our resident alignment technicians will perform not just a wheel alignment but also a comprehensive tyre check to make sure you're safe out on the road.
Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of kilometers to tyre life.
Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car travelling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.
A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment check. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems You lose more than just tyre tread if you fail to keep your vehicle properly aligned. Many suspension parts such as tie rods, shocks, struts and springs can also begin to wear as a direct result of a misaligned vehicle which can eventually cause a costly repair bill.
A wheel alignment should be done after getting new tyres, even if the old tyres are worn evenly. As your tyres get worn out, parts of the suspension also get worn. The wear maybe within acceptable limits, however it could be enough to throw the wheel alignment off. Unfortunately, you could have alignment issues that do not display any symptoms except for the tyre wear. Usually when this symptom is observed it is too late for the tyres and they will need to be replaced. For a quick and easy wheel alignment contact Coogee Auto. We'll have you driving straighter and safer in no time.
