Front End Alignment Tacoma

If your vehicle feels unstable, a front end alignment may improve safety, create a smoother ride, promote longer tire life, and increase fuel efficiency. The front end alignment of a vehicle is a series of adjustments to the front end suspension using exact weights and measures. The primary angles of steering involve the basic angle alignment of the wheels and their relationship to each other and the truck or car body. The adjustments are the camber, caster and toe. Not all of these alignment aspects can be adjusted on every wheel on every car, however.

True specifications are provided by the car makers. Proper adjustment allows the car to travel straight forward and stop in a straight line. Pulling to either side during driving or stopping means there is a problem. Precision Automotive can make the adjustments to keep your car running and stopping straight and true.
