Your vehicle’s alignment and suspension can affect everything from gas mileage, braking distance, tire wear, and the overall comfort of your ride. Having your car’s alignment and suspension checked annually will ensure that your vehicle is performing at its best.
Components that can affect your brake system include:
- Shocks and Struts: Will create safety issues and increase brake distance if worn down.
- Proper alignment saves gas.
- Usually, begin to wear down between 80K and 100K miles.
- Types of Alignment Adjustments: Camber, caster, and toe. Each affects a different aspect of your vehicle, like how the car handles, whether it pulls left or right, and keeping the tires straight.
