This is why it’s important to have both systems inspected in the spring to ensure any potential issues are addressed before they cause you problems down the road.

Alignment

Spring Alignment Service at Velde Ford in Pekin

The main job of your wheels’ alignment is to keep your vehicle driving straight on the road. With an accurate alignment your tires will stay parallel to each other, and perpendicular to the road. When your wheel alignment is off your vehicle’s performance and gas mileage can suffer because the car has to work harder to move. If your alignment is off in any way, you may feel your vehicle pulling left or right. It’s easy to make sure your vehicle is prepared for the spring season by making an appointment with our service experts for a routine wheel alignment. Additionally, if you notice any of the warning signs below, it’s important to bring your vehicle in for an alignment inspection:

  • Uneven tire wear
  • Vehicle is pulling left or right
  • Tires are squealing
  • Steering wheel vibrates excessively
