Struggling to Drive Straight?
If steering your car has become unusual or difficult, unfortunately, ignoring it won’t make it go away. A problematic steering system can get worse over time, can wear out your tires quickly, and cause your vehicle to be unsafe to drive. Because uncorrected alignment issues can lead to hundreds of dollars of tire replacement and suspension repair, we recommend scheduling an alignment check every 6 months or 6,000 miles. Perfection Automotive of Mahopac is there to diagnose and repair any of these issues:
Signs of Steering, Suspension and Alignment Problems
Any of these symptoms may show that you need service or repairs to your vehicle’s alignment, steering, drivetrain or suspension system:
- Uneven tire wear
- Off-center steering wheel while driving
- Pulling to the left or right
- Tire noise
Precise Alignment, Steering, and Suspension Service
With every alignment, we perform a complete steering and suspension system inspection. By replacing worn parts, you’ll regain steering control, which will improve driving performance. Here’s what Perfection Automotive will cover:
- Inspect steering and suspension system including tire condition and air pressure
- Put vehicle on alignment rack, mount and compensate sensors
- Print out alignment readings
Based on your vehicle’s construction, Perfection Automotive will recommend one of two types of alignments:
All-Wheel Full Adjustable Alignment
For vehicles with adjustable rear suspensions, we adjust the front and rear wheels perfectly parallel to the vehicle’s geometric centerline. The results are four wheels parallel with the steering wheel perfectly centered.
All-Wheel Thrust Angle Alignment
For vehicles with non-adjustable rear suspension, we determine the rear wheels’ thrust line (the direction in which they push) and then adjust the front wheels to be perfectly parallel with the rear thrust line. The results are front wheels precisely aligned with the thrust line of the rear wheels, all four wheels parallel and the steering wheel perfectly centered.
At Perfection Automotive, our certified technicians perform alignments using the latest computerized technology for state-of-the-art accuracy.
