Suspension and Steering

Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is the position of your wheels relative to your vehicle. When properly aligned, your wheels will point in the same direction as the vehicle. For more see alignment Tacoma. To maintain proper control of your car, you must keep your wheels in proper alignment. Otherwise, steering will become difficult, your tires will wear unevenly and your fuel economy will decrease.

An alignment check at Courtesy Auto includes:

  • Inspection of the steering and suspension components
  • Examination of the tires for size, inflation and wear.
  • Comparison of your alignment to vehicle manufacturer guidelines.
