What is a Wheel Alignment?

A wheel alignment is a service performed on your vehicle to realign the wheels to improve steering and provides a smoother ride. Rough roads, bumps, and potholes can throw your car out of alignment. A wheel alignment inspection happens before the service to determine what adjustments are required. Tires and suspension are inspected when you get your Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM wheel alignment. You may need to get a two-wheel alignment or a four-wheel alignment based on your vehicle type. A two-wheel alignment simply means a front-end adjustment. The front two tires have their camber, caster, and toe correctly adjusted to the manufacturer’s recommendations. In a four-wheel alignment, all of your wheels are adjusted.

Do I Really Need an Alignment?

Over time your vehicle will lose its alignment from its factory settings, making driving and steering more difficult. Road conditions and driving styles can impact the alignment of your vehicle. You may notice your steering wheel pulling to one side and other differences that affect driving. When this happens, it means you will likely need a wheel adjustment. There are other common signs that your wheels have gone out of alignment. In addition to the steering wheel pulling, visible tread wear on your tires is another sign. Misalignment can wear your tires down prematurely and increase tire costs. A reduction in gas mileage may be another effect of misalignment.

Maintaining Your Wheel Alignment

A two-wheel alignment and four-wheel alignment are routine maintenance services that keep your vehicle driving smoothly. There is no set time to get this service done, but we recommend a yearly wheel alignment inspection; based on inspection results, additional services may be required, depending on certain factors. Neglecting this service can cause problems with your car that may worsen in time. Your vehicle may not drive and steer optimally, and the tires can be adversely affected. The service is relatively simple and does not require a lot of time, making it easy to fit into your schedule.
