Van Wheel Alignment Including Suspension

Of course, wheel alignments are very important to both tyre wear. Including, the very important part? the overall control of your vehicle. So, improper wheel alignment or, as they are also called, “tracking” can cause your tyres to wear unevenly and prematurely. Of course this also includes “vans”. Van drivers cover many more miles than most car drivers? So, it is just as important for your van to have the alignment checked at regular periods.

Out of alignment can also affect the position of your steering wheel ? That is why it’s very important to make sure the wheels of your vehicle are properly aligned by a professional.

When your wheels are out of alignment

So, your tyres are pointing in the wrong direction or at the wrong  angle. Subsequently, this affects your steering and suspension. Most importantly though, it can greatly affect your safety of the driver and the safety of your passengers.

If you think you have a steering problem ? How do your wheels get unaligned?

Steering and suspension parts are free moving ? So it doesn’t take much for your vehicle’s wheel alignment to become out of line. Several things that can cause improper wheel alignment are  including:

In my opinion the biggest cause-Running over potholes
Secondly- By hitting a curb
Thirdly- By bumping into concrete parking blocks ( these are getting more common where parking is being restricted)
Other causes are general wear and tear. This is affected when your vehicle ages. Subsequently, the rubber parts that contain lubricants start to dry up and crack. Of course, this causes ball and socket joints to become loose. So, getting progressively worse over time.

How often should you have your alignment checked?

Here at Pellon Autocentre in Halifax .it is recommended that you have your vehicle’s alignment checked every annual service. Or when you get your tyres changed. As a result, a lot can happen to your wheel alignment after 6,000 miles. The longer you wait to get your wheels aligned. Then the more damage can be caused. Especially to your tyres prematurely  wearing.

So van owners take heed?
