Why is Regular Alignment Essential for Diesel Trucks?
Misaligned trucks and trailers are prone to several issues. Firstly, they may experience uneven or rapid tire wear, which can lead to premature replacement and increased operational costs. Furthermore, misaligned trucks require more energy (fuel) to move, reducing fuel efficiency and negatively impacting your bottom line. Finally, alignment issues can compromise the vehicle's handling, leading to safety concerns, especially in adverse weather conditions or during challenging maneuvers.

How Do We Perform Truck and Trailer Alignment?
Our alignment process starts with a comprehensive evaluation of your vehicle's current alignment using advanced laser alignment tools. This enables us to identify any deviation from the manufacturer's specifications. Once we've established the alignment status, we make necessary adjustments to the vehicle's suspension system. We focus on three primary alignment angles: camber, toe, and caster.
- Camber: This angle measures the tilt of your tires when viewed from the front. Too much inward or outward tilt, negative or positive camber, can cause tire wear on one side.
- Toe: Toe alignment refers to the extent your tires turn inward or outward when viewed from above. Incorrect toe alignment can lead to uneven tire wear.
- Caster: This angle affects the steering balance and stability of your truck. Positive caster enhances straight-line stability, while negative caster improves steering ease.
