Heavy-Duty Truck Truck & Trailer Alignment Repair Service

Truck and trailer misalignment can put a lot of stress on your steering and suspension assemblies. If left unchecked, this may cause damage to both systems. Fortunately, a misaligned suspension and steering system is quite easy to diagnose. If your truck is misaligned, you’ll likely notice uneven tread wear, a strong pulling to one side, shaking in your steering column, and less than satisfactory handling. By aligning your suspension, you’re effectively maximizing the lifespan of your suspension, steering assembly, and tires. You’ll also notice that your truck drives straighter and handles better when cornering.

What causes misalignment? 

Misalignment can be caused by a wide variety of things, but the most common is simply age and use. Over time, your various components shift and come out of alignment. This is why manufacturers recommend getting your truck aligned every 30 thousand miles or so. Misalignment can also be caused by a collision, contact with road debris, and installing a new set of tires. 

What happens if I leave misalignment unchecked? 

If you leave your suspension and steering misaligned, you’re putting a lot of stress and tension on important parts. For example, if your toe angle is off, your tires will be trying to move in different directions. If your toe angle is off by even a fraction of a degree, your tie roads and linkages have to work very hard to keep up. This lowers their lifespan and increases the risk of an unexpected breakdown.
