Even though some drivers may not actually understand what it means when their car is properly aligned, they will notice if it loses its alignment! They may notice that their car no longer grips the road like it should when taking corners, especially on wet slick roads. Their car is harder to steer, wanting to drift to the side of the road even though they are holding the steering wheel straight! They may also notice that the tread on their four tires is not wearing evenly, but that patches on certain tires are wearing at a faster rate than on the other tires.

What causes wheel alignment problems, you ask? Any one of the issues below can cause your car to have front alignment problems:

  1. Poor road conditions. Driving consistently on bumpy gravel roads, hitting potholes and curbs, or going too fast over speed bumps.
  2. Worn out suspension components. Shocks or struts become worn out and can loosen, unable to keep your car stable while driving.
  3. After-market vehicle modifications. Lifting the height or adjusting the suspension of your vehicle throws off the front alignment.
  4. Auto Accident. Whether it’s major or minor, a bump can throw off the front alignment.

For future reference, remember the benefits of keeping your car’s front alignment in the proper position:

  • It helps your tires last longer,
  • It increases your vehicle’s fuel economy,
  • It prevents damage to the suspension system, and
  • It provides a more comfortable ride.

Tip to Remember: Every week or so, walk around your vehicle to check the condition of your tires. If the rubber looks rough, the tread is wearing unevenly, or if you are feeling out of control while steering, schedule a front alignment service as soon as possible.
