4 Wheel Alignment

4 Wheel Alignment by Moorfield Motor Services, Kilmarnock, AyrshireWe have invested heavily in one of the best 4 wheel alignment systems in the market. The Hofmann system operates with 8 sensors to ensure the most accurate set up meaning you know your alignment, castor and camber are all as they should be. If you settings are incorrect for example after fitting new tyres your car will not handle and perform as it should and can lead to further problems and uneven tyre wear.

Wheel alignment is very important to the health of your vehicle and can some times be overlooked. If you hit a large pothole, you might bump your suspension out of the carefully calculated locations that the components have been set. Wheel alignment should also be checked after fitting new tyres, also if suspension has been lowered or replaced to give maximum tyre life and make a vehicle track straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.

The symptoms of a car that is out of alignment are:

  • Uneven or rapid tyre wear
  • Pulling or drifting away from a straight line
  • Wandering on a straight level road
  • Spokes of the steering wheel off to one side while driving on a straight and level road
