Wheel Alignment

In simple terms, a car that has its tracking set properly has all four wheels pointing in the same direction.

If you hit a kerb or a pothole (even at low speed) your tracking can become misaligned.
This increases friction on the tyres which leads to increased tyre wear and poor fuel economy.
It can also cause handling problems and will ultimately affect your safety.

Not all 4 Wheel Alignment Services are the same.

Many garages offer 4 wheel alignment, but few do so to the standards we insist upon, so beware of cheap imitations.

Step 1.

Visual and Mechanical Checks

Before we do any 4 wheel alignment we always check the vehicle for visible mechanical wear or damage, especially the suspension.
If we find anything wrong with your suspension or any of the vehicle's other mechanical systems, we will quote you for putting them right before carrying out (or charging you for) 4 wheel alignment.
Once we are happy with the mechanical integrity of your vehicle, we will set the tyre pressures to the correct specifications then carry out the 4 wheel alignment.

Step 2.

Initial 4 Wheel Alignment check using 4D cameras (Tracking)

Choose from:
 Basic 4 Wheel Alignment:
 Full Camber, Caster and Geometry:

All of this can be checked and adjusted using our 4D wheel alignment system.
Prices for 4 wheel alignment are typically £95 including VAT but this depends on many factors, so please call us on 01263 721364 or use our Contact Us. page.

Step 3.

Post 4 Wheel Alignment Road Test

Having carried out the 4-wheel alignment, we take your vehicle for a second road test to confirm that we have solved the problem.

Step 4.

Final 4 Wheel Alignment

Following the road test, we will re-check your 4 wheel alignment to make sure everything is OK.
