Wheel alignment is the adjustment or readjustment of wheel angles to meet the vehicle maker’s specifications. The technician can also change tire angles to go beyond the automaker’s specifications as a type of custom work. Custom adjustments are typically only done for instances such as motorsport or off-road applications.
You should schedule a wheel alignment every other time you have a tire rotation or when you install new tires. Such adjustments help to ensure that your vehicle travels in a straight line with no pulling in either direction. It also helps to reduce uneven tire wear.
The technician will put clamp-like devices on each of your car’s wheels, linked to a computer that provides accurate measurements for the wheel angles. The technician will likely look at your vehicle’s suspension components simultaneously to check if they’re excessively worn or broken.
As the name suggests, a two-wheel alignment is an adjustment of the front wheels. It is more common to do a two-wheel alignment on a big SUV or a truck that has a solid rear axle. There are exceptions, like when the vehicle has been involved in an accident. Sometimes after an accident, the rear axle is out of square with the front wheels, causing the automobile to track improperly while driving.
A four-wheel alignment is when a technician works on the wheel angles for all the vehicle’s wheels. A certain procedure is needed if the vehicle has four-wheel independent suspension, which applies to most cars, vans, and small SUVs. A four-wheel alignment includes adjusting the caster, camber, and toe for the front wheels and toe and camber adjustment for the rear wheels. When an alignment is done properly, the automobile steers and handles correctly.
