Modified Alignments

An alignment consists of adjusting the steering and suspension components of your vehicle that are connected to your vehicle's wheels. It is not an adjustment to the tires or wheels themselves. To maximize tread life and ensure that your vehicle tracks straight, a proper alignment is necessary for even tread wear and precise steering. A misaligned vehicle could also affect your gas mileage. With our state-of-the-art computerized alignment machines, we will also provide you with a computer printout showing the adjustments that were made to your vehicle.

Many OEMs are building cars with little to no alignment adjustment capabilities because of the tightened tolerances they have already. While the alignment is perfect when it rolls out of the factory, what happens when it starts to age and the body and cradle start to settle? With the limited adjustments available, there’s almost no range left. And, it doesn’t take long before tires wear and the vehicle begins to display other unwanted handling characteristics.

You will see many shops out there offering quick, cheap alignments. When an alignment is done in 20 minutes, be aware. Look for the phrase “Modified Specifications” at the top of your alignment report. That means they changed the numbers in the computer to “align” your vehicle instead of taking the time to actually align your vehicle. Tires are too much of an investment to not make them last as long as possible.
