What Is A Front End Alignment?
A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. is the best Front End Alignment Auto Repair Shop in the Mountain View, CA area. Front end alignment is simply tire or wheel alignment done to your two front tires. The front tires of a car go out of alignment a lot more often and a lot easier than the rear tires because your front tires are involved in the steering process, and we tend to hit things like pot holes and curbs harder with our front tires.
When all four wheels are aligned the rear wheels are said to “set the course” for the direction the vehicle rolls, while the front wheels are said to “correct”. Since they steer, and since they arrive at obstacles first, they tend to take most of the abuse and get our of alignment easier.
Why Is Having Your Front End Aligned Important?
First of all if your front wheels are not in alignment your tires will wear out much quicker than they otherwise would. This can cause you to have to replace your tires sooner than you would have to otherwise. It can also cause your tires to go flat or burst when you think your tires are fine, because they were wearing out really fast on an inside part, while from the side of the car they look fine. This can be dangerous.
If you have ever driven a car that you have to really hold the steering wheel all the time because it keeps “pulling off the road”, this is because your front end was out of alignment. And that can also be quite dangerous. In more severe cases your tires can ride rough, make a humming sound or even a loud squeal. If you get any of these symptoms be sure to stop in and have us check it out right away.
