Steering and Suspension

Another important part of your vehicle is the steering and suspension systems. The suspension is responsible for keeping the tires planted to the ground through bumps, holes, and rough terrain. These systems work hand in hand to ensure you have the best possible control of your vehicle.

 

Alignment

 

he proper alignment of your vehicle is critical to ensuring you have the best possible control of your vehicle and that you get the best life out of the vehicle’s tires as possible.

 

Camber is your wheel leaning in or out at the top when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Incorrect camber adjustment will cause the inside or outside edge of the tire to wear at an accelerated rate.

 

Toe is the wheel pointing in or out at the front when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Incorrect toe alignment will cause feathering of the tires and will wear the tires very fast.

 

Caster is the inclination of the steering axis when viewing the wheel from the side of the car. Incorrect caster angle will not cause accelerated tire wear. Positive caster increases high speed stability and cornering effectiveness.
