Unfortunately, it doesn’t take much to knock your vehicle out of alignment. Running over a pothole or hitting a curb could be all it takes to throw off alignment. If this happens to you, the best thing you can do is to look for signs of misalignment. Although many of the signs aren’t visual, there are some clear signs you can look for. Here are a few things you can do when searching for wheel misalignment.
Although there aren’t many visual signs of misalignment, this is one of them. While in “Park,” inspect how your vehicle looks from a neutral position. Your wheel should be centered and in line with the wheels, which need to be straight to in order to reach true alignment. If the steering wheel needs to be turned one way or the other for your vehicle to go straight, that is a clear sign of misalignment.
Another way to test your vehicle’s alignment is to simply drive in an empty parking lot. While driving slowly, release your steering wheel and pay attention to how your vehicle moves. If it sways one way or the other instead of staying straight, your vehicle may be suffering from misalignment. You’ll also want to feel for any vibrations, as that is another sign of misalignment. Both of these symptoms are typically caused when one wheel is working against the other. This can cause additional damage over time, so you’ll want to visit us as soon as possible!
