Regular wheel alignments provide safe, predictable vehicle control
Your wheel alignment is one of the key maintenance factors to ensure that you get the most economy and performance out of your tyres.
Regular wheel alignments provide safe, predictable vehicle control as well as a smooth and comfortable ride free of pulling or vibration, and improved mileage.
Today’s modern suspensions require precise wheel alignments that can only be achieved through a modern alignment system. This applies to both front and rear wheel drive vehicles.
Thrust Alignment – Passenger & 4WD vehicles
Aligning the front wheels to the vehicle’s thrust line provides a significant improvement to the cars alignment.
In the thrust line method, rear individual toe is measured (but not adjusted). The thrust line created by the rear wheels is used as a reference for aligning the front wheels.
As a result, the operator is assured of a straight steering wheel as the vehicle moves straight ahead.
Total Four-Wheel Alignment
Total four-wheel alignment is the ultimate wheel alignment service. Individual rear toe is measured, and then adjusted to the factory specifications. This adjustment brings the thrust line of the rear wheels line with the vehicle’s centreline.
The front wheels are then aligned to the identical centreline/thrust line.
A total four-wheel alignment results in all four wheels being parallel and the steering wheel and steering geometry being centred as the vehicle moves in a straight line.
