Four-Wheel Alignment Service

Four-Wheel Alignment in Calgary. Most vehicles are either front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. Every car, truck, and SUV need to have the camber, caster, and toe of their wheels aligned from time to time. When you have your wheels aligned, it’s always best to have all of them aligned. But, wherever the power is coming from, the front or back wheels, is the most important place to provide alignment service if you’re only going to align either the front or back, depending on where the power is coming from. However, with an AWD vehicle, it’s very important to have all of the wheels aligned every time.

Why All-Wheel Alignment Is Crucial for AWD Vehicles. Proper wheel alignment is essential for optimal performance in any vehicle, contributing to improved gas mileage and reduced wear and tear. In traditional vehicles with power coming from the rear wheels, misalignment in the rear can impact steering, though the effects are less pronounced. However, for All-Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles, the consequences of poor alignment are even more significant than in their two-wheel drive counterparts. Consequences of Vehicle Misalignment. When a vehicle is out of alignment, drivers often experience a noticeable pull to one side while driving. This not only requires constant steering adjustments but also induces conflicting mechanical forces, diminishing fuel efficiency and potentially leading to more substantial repairs down the road. Even a minor misalignment, such as 0.01% of a degree, can result in a discernible pull on a straight road. Front-wheel-drive vehicles may exhibit a slightly more pronounced effect. For AWD vehicles, the impact of poor alignment is magnified, emphasizing the critical need for regular alignment maintenance. Ensure the longevity and efficiency of your AWD vehicle by prioritizing proper wheel alignment, minimizing the risk of steering issues, reduced fuel efficiency, and the need for extensive repairs. Regular alignment checks and adjustments are essential for preserving the optimal performance of your AWD vehicle and preventing unnecessary wear and tear.
