 ALIGNMENT & SUSPENSION SERVICES

Vehicle alignment determines how your tires drive in relation to your steering wheel. When your wheel is perfectly straight, your tires should be too. When the two fall out of sync, problems arise. A dip in fuel economy, a rougher ride and premature wear on your tires are just a few things that occur when your alignment is off.

How your vehicle handles out on the road is all thanks to its suspension system. Being able to drive in a straight line, turn corners, traverse bumps and dips, and more all depends on a fully-functional suspension system. And, with more than 40 different parts and pieces that comprise the entire thing, it’s a complex system that requires thorough expertise to service. At Hi-Tech Auto Repair, we’ll provide your vehicle with a full range of suspension repair services. Our abilities extend to all major suspension components, including:
• Wheels and tires
• Shocks and struts
• Springs
• Bushings, bearings and joints
• Linkages and stabilizers
• Steering system
• Differentials

Shocks and struts help you bounce back after hitting a pothole; differentials allow your wheels to turn at different speeds around corners; and linkages keep everything connected to function seamlessly. All of these components and more work together to ensure your vehicle moves like you need it to.

Hi-Tech Auto Repair offers complete alignment and suspension repair services, to ensure your wheels are properly balanced and your alignment is centered perfectly.

What causes alignment problems?

General wear and tear are the main causes of alignment issues. Simply driving on rough roads will slowly disrupt the angle of your wheels over time. In addition, however, there are also many other reasons why your vehicle might be out of alignment, including:

• Potholes and poor road conditions
• Uneven tread wear on your tires
• Wear and tear on suspension components (ball joints, control arm bushings, etc.)
• Damaged steering parts (tie rod ends, idler arms, etc.)
• Body/frame damage from a recent collision

Keep in mind, sometimes an alignment can’t be done until the problem causing misalignment is fixed. Replacing damaged struts, changing out tires or repairing damage to your auto’s frame will ensure a re-alignment takes hold.

Our team is uniquely qualified to perform alignment services and our shop comes equipped with everything needed to properly measure and adjust your wheels. Barring any repairs, the alignment process only takes about an hour and could impact everything from your fuel economy to component wear.

Does your vehicle need suspension repair?

Problems within your vehicle’s suspension aren’t shy about making themselves known. Keep an eye out for the following problems signaling the need for suspension repair:

• Vibrations, shaking or pulling when cornering
• Bouncy or shaky rides on relatively flat ground
• Rocking or swaying from your vehicle
• Fluid leakage from shocks and struts
• Problems reverting back to center after a turn
• Groaning or creaking from your chassis while driving

Suspension issues result in discomfort while you’re driving. If your vehicle feels like it’s being stressed, strained or has lost stability, it’s a good sign that your suspension has been compromised. You may even begin to see a loss in fuel economy or problems with other components, like cupping or balding of your tires.

Does your vehicle need an alignment?

If you need to hold your steering wheel at an angle while you’re driving straight, it’s a big sign you’re due for an alignment. If the vehicle is pulling left or right, this also generally indicates an alignment issue. Some other telltale signs include:

Uneven tread wear of tires on one side

Vibration in your steering wheel, even at low speeds

Bumping or grinding sounds that indicate wear on suspension parts

The easiest way to see if your alignment needs to be adjusted is to ask a Hi-Tech Auto Repair mechanic next time your vehicle is in for service. By measuring the camber, caster and toe of your wheels, they’ll be able to tell you the status of your alignment. If it’s off, they’ll adjust it. Schedule a service appointment with us today and ask about your alignment!

Suspension troubles can have a domino effect if they’re not resolved early on. A failing component puts stress on another, which begins to fail itself—and so on until the whole system demands repairs. A broken strut, for example, can put stress on the transmission and drive axle, which will work harder than they need to when it comes to stabilizing your car. It’s easy to see where repair costs can add up! Save yourself time, frustration and money by catching suspension troubles early on and resolving them completely.
