The Alignment Process: A Symphony of Precision

When alignment becomes a necessity, Centerline Frame & Auto is your go-to destination. Armed with state-of-the-art Hunter Alignment equipment and a commitment to excellence, we offer a detailed alignment process that leaves no angle unaddressed.

Step 1: Comprehensive Analysis

Our alignment process begins with a meticulous visual inspection coupled with the advanced capabilities of our alignment machine. Our technicians focus on three crucial steering angles:

  1. Caster: This angle, formed between the upper and lower ball joints of the steering mechanism, plays a role in maintaining proper steering height and stability at high speeds.
  2. Camber: The angle between the tire and the road's horizontal plane impacts tire tread contact and influences tire wear.
  3. Toe: Measuring the distance between the leading edges of the tires, toe alignment affects tire wear and stability during turns.

Step 2: Alignment Adjustment

With recorded angles in hand, our certified technicians compare them against the manufacturer's recommendations. Using the precision of the Hunter Alignment System, we fine-tune the caster, camber, and toe angles until they fall within the optimal ranges set by the vehicle manufacturer.

Alignment Matters: Why Precision Counts

Not all vehicles are created equal when it comes to alignment adjustments. While some only require front-wheel alignment, others benefit from adjusting all four wheels. The stakes are high: correct alignment is crucial, and misalignment can lead to various issues:

  1. Uneven Tire Wear: Signs of misalignment often manifest as tire wear along the edges. Regular checks are advised to catch this issue early.
  2. Pulling to One Side: Misaligned wheels can cause your vehicle to drift to one side even on flat roads, sometimes becoming more pronounced during braking.
  3. Crooked Steering Wheel: The alignment status can affect your steering wheel's position, even when driving straight.
