Does your Vehicle Feel “Off”?
Is your vehicle pulling from one side to another? Are your tires showing signs of uneven or premature wear? If so, It maybe be time to visit the technicians at Steel Horse Automotive for a wheel alignment London Ontario. We can perform regular checks to help you avoid major alignment issues.
What is a Wheel Alignment?
Generally, it means that your car’s wheels are adjusted to point in the right direction, according to factory specifications. Be sure to have your vehicle’s front end alignment and back end alignment checked every six months, or after you travel approximately 10,000 km.
Signs that you need a wheel alignment include, but are not limited to:
- Off-centred steering wheel while driving straight
- A pull to one side
- Uneven or premature tire wear
In some cases, an alignment is required after you make repairs to the vehicle’s suspension, where the adjustable component is the one being removed or replaced.
In either event, our experts are here to perform a detailed wheel alignment London Ontario to help you achieve a smoother drive.
Wheel Alignment Service & Repair in London Ontario
At Steel Horse Automotive, we have the modern dealership-level equipment and trained technicians to make sure your wheel alignment in London, Ontario is done correctly. Our reputation is so strong that several other shops and dealers trust us with their alignments as well.
Prior to performing a wheel alignment on your vehicle, our mechanics will:
- Start by inspecting the suspension components to ensure that none are worn and loose,
- Fit the vehicle with heads that clamp onto the tires and sit on padded rings against the wheel,
- Ensure that no metal touches the wheel, preventing scratches, and
- Use the alignment machine’s cameras to measure the precise angles on your vehicle.
In most cases where adjustments are required, we can use adjustment mechanisms that are built into the vehicle. If an angle is non-adjustable, aftermarket components can be installed to facilitate the required adjustment to bring everything back into the specification set out by the manufacturer. Once complete, we supply you with a colour print-out showing the “before and after” alignment angles of your vehicle.
