Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment (also known as tracking) is a service that resets your car’s wheels to their original position, according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This is often required by cars that have suffered kerbing or hit a dip, bump or pothole in the road. Tracking can also be affected by excessive wear on the steering and/or suspension components.

Should your alignment be out, you may find that your car becomes unpredictable to drive i.e. your steering may drift to one side, your tyres may show signs of uneven and rapid wear and tear or you may notice an increase in fuel consumption. Addressing alignment issues as soon as they emerge is critical to your safety.

How often should you check your wheel alignment?

At Uckfield Motor Services we advise that you book a wheel alignment check every year or every 12,000 miles (whichever comes sooner). It’s also worth noting that whilst there are many signs to look out for when it comes to your wheel alignment, incorrect alignment can also go unnoticed. If you’d like your alignment tested for free when you visit our workshop, simply ask one of our friendly team.

What does a wheel alignment test involve?

During the wheel alignment test, your car will be placed on a ramp. Using our 4-wheel laser alignment equipment our skilled team will then test your wheels as they are free spinning. From the collected data, they’ll then be able to determine the alignment of your wheels. If your wheels aren’t correctly aligned, we’ll let you know and undertake any work required to address the issue. The team will finally retest your wheels to confirm that your car now benefits from the correct wheel alignment.

You’ll only be charged if we find that your alignment is out and we’ll never move ahead with corrective measures before it is agreed with the customer first.
