How Does Vehicle Alignment Work?

An alignment measurement consists of four different parts. Each part is essential to guaranteeing a proper maintenance job. We will look at caster first, which is essential to the steering performance and the stability of your vehicle at higher speeds. When you steer your car, the wheels work on a pivot to respond. The caster is the angle of that pivot. Each tire should have an equal measurement when it comes to caster to ensure the weight of your vehicle is distributed evenly.Camber is comparable to caster, but determines if the tires are angled forward or backward. Camber is important to tires, as it can factor into how quickly tires wear down and need to be replaced. If your tires all have different camber settings, your vehicle will pull to a specific side while you are driving. Each tire should be equal in camber so the vehicle can drive straight.Toe settings compare the front of the car and the rear of the car. You want your vehicle set at zero or parallel toe so your front wheels don’t pull towards each other on the road.Ride height is the fourth and final measurement, and it is exactly what it sounds like. It determines how close your vehicle’s frame is to the ground. This is a good reference point that can help determine what the other measurements should be. Even a slight modification to your ride height mean that other aspects of your alignment need to be adjusted.If your alignment is causing you problems, bring your vehicle into Dabney’s today and have us give it a proper measurement to determine what your needs are.
