When do I need a wheel alignment? | Ford Service | Denver

Why is Wheel Alignment so Important?
Proper alignment of wheels positions them so each are lined up in the same direction, perpendicular to the ground, parallel to each other and to the center of the car.
Wheels that are out of alignment affects
steering, suspension, safety, durability of the tires and all parts controlling them.
Alignments are measured in tenths and hundredths of degrees or inches.  A computerized alignment machine does the high tech and precise measuring. Once your car is on the alignment rack, special sensors are mounted to each wheel.  The computer measures the angles of the wheels and adjusts to the manufacture specifications.
