Your wheel alignment is one of the key maintenance factors to ensure that you get the most out of your tyres and your vehicle’s handling.
Through precise calculations with our state-of-the-art wheel alignment machinery, performing regular wheel alignments on your vehicle should occur every 6 months or 10,000km – whichever comes first.
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.
Aligning the front wheels to the vehicle’s thrust line provides a significant improvement to the car’s alignment.
In the thrust line method, the 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 driver is assured of a straight steering wheel as the vehicle moves straight ahead.
Total Four-Wheel Alignment
A total four-wheel alignment is the ultimate wheel alignment service.
The individual rear toe is measured, 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, with the steering wheel and steering geometry being centred as the vehicle moves in a straight line.
