Some cars require only two-wheel alignment, but more and more are made to allow all four wheels to be aligned. Cars and trucks have camber, caster and toe angles. When they are properly aligned, the car will go straight without much correcting of the steering. If any tires are out of alignment, the car will pull to the right or left, and there will be uneven tire wear. Bring your vehicle to Volkswagen of Inver Grove, in Inver Grove Heights, MN.

If your car has four-wheel drive, four-wheel independent suspension or if the rear suspension is adjustable, you will need a four-wheel alignment. It is a good idea to get the alignment checked every other oil change, or at about 10,000 miles. If your car stops going straight or if you notice a vibration in the steering, it is a good idea to get it checked even sooner. A lot of things can affect your alignment, such as the types of surfaces you drive on. If you hit a curb hard, for instance, that could also affect the alignment of your tires. If you have an incident with your car, it is a good idea to get it checked out by a professional service department. Alignment requires specialized equipment, which we have at our facility.
