Why Alignments Are Necessary
Ensuring your suspension and steering are properly aligned is of the utmost importance. A misaligned suspension puts a lot of stress on major components, causing them to wear out faster. For example, when tie rods and important linkages are misaligned, they’re putting a lot of force on other components to keep them in line. This increases the chances that they’ll fail. At Chuck’s Truck Service Centre, we offer alignments of all kinds. Whether you need your truck, trailer, or both aligned, we’ve got you covered.
Symptoms of Misalignment
If your suspension and steering are misaligned, you’ll likely notice substantial handling changes. For one, your truck may pull to one side, as well as shake at certain speeds, or even shudder while turning. Other symptoms include uneven tire tread wear in cases where your camber and toe angles are improperly set, poor fuel economy, and premature wear and tear.
Benefits of Our Alignment Service
Getting your suspension aligned is a great way to improve your heavy-duty truck’s handling and maneuverability, prevent premature wear and tear, and increase your fuel economy. When aligning your truck, you’re effectively taking the stress away from important components, which in turn lengthens their lifespan and saves you money in the way of avoiding issues. Alignment is generally included under the umbrella of preventive maintenance and should be done on an annual basis.
