Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is done by a John Bean’s Lazer alignment machine which checks the alignment and steering systems giving direct leading and centering. The machine also reads toe-in/toe-out in all axles and also reads caster, camber and the king pin inclination. Once the job is completed the vehicle is tested on smooth and rough roads.

TYPES OF ALIGNMENTS

“4W” – 4 – Wheel Alignment

Required on virtually all front wheel drive models and most rear wheel drive models with independent rear suspension. Needed for proper vehicle handling, safer operation, and for maximizing Tyre life.

“4WC” – 4 Wheel Compensated Alignment

Commonly called “Thrust Angle Alignment”, recommended for rear wheel drive models with a solid rear axle. Ensures that the rear of the vehicle is tracking properly with the front which provides for proper vehicle handling and a “straight” steering wheel.

“2W” – 2 Wheel Alignment (Front Only)

Usually used on older models where just a single tie rod adjustment is available. Steering wheel may not be centered after this type of alignment adjustment and could result in some customer dissatisfaction.
