One of Farmville Auto Repair’s specialty services is wheel alignments and related steering adjustments for our Farmville clients.
If your vehicle tends to pull to one side while driving, it may need an alignment. If you notice uneven tire wear that can also mean your vehicle needs service. This kind of repair is not a job you can do at home — it requires training and specialized tools to properly align your vehicle. Call us immediately if you notice your vehicle has any of these issues, as bad alignments can turn into more serious and expensive problems if not repaired promptly.
Farmville Auto Repair offers full alignment services, including front-end alignments, steering alignments & adjustments, and all-wheel alignments.
When should I get my vehicle’s wheels aligned?
Front End Alignment Tip: A shaking sensation in the steering wheel or front end of your vehicle likely indicates out-of-balance or out-of-round tires, and does not necessarily indicate wheel misalignment.
What work is done in a front-end or four-wheel alignment?
Simply put, we ensure that your vehicle’s wheels are aligned correctly, along three different angles: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to whether the top of the wheel is tilted toward or away from the vehicle. Toe refers to whether the front of the wheel is tilted toward or away from the vehicle. Caster is the angle at which the pivot axis of the wheel is tilted. Positive caster means the top pivot is positioned farther to the rear than the bottom pivot, and negative caster means the top pivot is positioned farther to the front than the bottom pivot. Each of these three wheel angles affect the performance of the wheel and tire.
Having correctly aligned wheels is beneficial because it:
