If it is getting harder to keep your car on the road, you might need a wheel alignment. If your car is swerving too much, come see us at Rapids Honda, your source for wheel alignment in the Coon Rapids, MN area. We are a short drive from Anoka, Andover, Brooklyn Park, and Ham Lake, MN. Most cars need only the front wheels aligned, but some need an all-wheel alignment. Your vehicle should drive down the highway straight, without much if any steering correction. If your car does not do that, you may need an alignment.
In a wheel alignment, the toe and camber are adjusted to keep your wheels turning in a way that keeps the car going straight. If you notice you are having to constantly correct the steering, or if your car tends to drift to one side, you probably need an alignment. The wheel alignment can get loose over time, or you could knock it out by hitting a curb or running off the road. Most of the time it goes out of alignment very slowly, so you don’t notice it until it is out of alignment enough to need service. There are other things, such as wheel balancing that can also affect how straight your car drives, so if there is any question come see us and we can get it straightened out.
When your wheels get out of alignment, your car will drift to one side or the other. If it gets bad enough, it could become hard to steer. You could get into an accident if the alignment got real bad. Usually, though, it only causes your car to drift and that makes driving harder. It will also affect your steering, making it not as precise as it should be. Wheels out of alignment will also make your tires wear on one side more than the other, which shortens the life of your tires. A bad wheel alignment will also cause you to have even more expensive repairs if it is ignored. Like most issues concerning your car, they only get worse, and it is more economical in the long run to get work done earlier than later.
