We've truly seen it all when it comes to diagnosing and correcting mechanical suspension problems negatively impacting wheel positioning and alignment over our long history of serving the Littleton community.

Recognizing the Common Signs a Vehicle May Need Wheel Realignment

Some typical symptoms that indicate your wheels have gradually slipped out of alignment specifications include:

  • Vehicle persistently pulling towards the right or left, requiring constant small steering corrections just to move straight
  • Visibly crooked, off-center steering wheel orientation appears after new tires are installed or due to a pothole encounter
  • High-pitched squealing tire noise predominantly emanating from one front corner while cornering
  • Inside or outside tire tread shoulder showing substantially accelerated wear

Catching alignment deviations early and adjusting back to straight-line vehicle tracking minimizes exaggerated inner or outer tire tread wear that prematurely shortens intended tire life replacement cycles. Premature replacement means wasting money unnecessarily on new rubber years sooner than required with proper alignments.

Our Thorough Wheel Alignment Process

When you bring any vehicle make or model into our state-of-the-art service bays for wheel alignment inspection and adjustment, our expert technicians follow a systematic process tailored to your vehicle's needs:

  1. The vehicle is carefully centered on our modern Hunter Engineering Professional Series alignment rack
  2. The wheels are digitally locked into place on the rack's preset hydraulic clamping platforms
  3. High-resolution cameras and laser sensors gather baseline OE alignment angle measurements
  4. Both front and rear axle alignment specifications are checked for deviations
  5. Professional adjustments are calculated and made with absolute precision to bring all values back within factory tolerances
  6. The steering wheel is centered, and a test drive is conducted before re-verifying alignment angle accuracy

Serious Dangers of Postponing Essential Wheel Alignments

Putting off getting your vehicle realigned when symptoms initially arise can lead to an escalating cascade of steering and suspension wear issues along with compromised vehicle control, especially at highway speeds.

Allowing misaligned wheels to remain out of specification for extended durations results in substantially accelerated inner or outer tire tread wear as camber and toe positions subject friction and heat damage to zones of rubber not designed to handle it. This rapidly and permanently reduces tread depth, resulting in thousands of dollars spent prematurely replacing otherwise correctly worn tires long before their mileage life expectancy.

The chronic strain that misaligned tires place on associated ball joints also intensifies component fatigue wear, leading to torn boots or complete detachments. Loose or broken ball joints disable steering precision entirely, eating away at control.

Bad alignment angles also introduce extra load force strain on directional control arms and tie rods, accelerating bushing tears or link end detachments until loose and wandering steering force an alignment and full suspension rebuild manifest. Vehicles drifting consistently to the right or left from unaddressed alignment deviations present a higher risk for loss of vehicle control accidents the longer issues go unfixed. Driver overcorrection becomes more severe as the compensating grip diminishes.
