Tracking & Wheels Alignment
Palourtis Garage carry out wheel alignment using top of the range Wheel Alignment equipment. The systems are highly accurate and very reliable. Our equipment provides high quality digital imaging with four precision cameras that measure the positioning and orientation of the mounted reflection targets on all wheels of the car. Using this information, the computer can accurately calculate the current alignment measurements. It takes only a small misalignment to create problems. This also leads to your tyres being worn down unevenly and can sometimes cause serious problems when out driving. When you notice your car pulling to the side this usually means that your front wheels are not aligned to the rear thrust line. To drive in a straight line, you would probably have to steer the front wheels slightly to the right or left. This can happen from normal wear and tear.
All four wheels
When you come to us for wheel alignment or tracking we will make sure, using our state of the art equipment, that all four wheels are aligned. Unlike most garages who will simply re align the front wheels, which can fix the problem short term, we align all four of your wheels back to manufacturers standards.
The benefits to having all four wheels aligned is huge:
What to expect from us
You will receive a fantastic service with somewhere to wait while the car is worked on when you come to us.
We will first establish that the car is able to be aligned with a pre alignment check. The detail of this check may be model specific, but would ensure that any worn steering or suspension components are identified. We will start with a full four-wheel measurement and adjustment of front individual toe thus straightening the steering wheel, this is then followed by diagnosis of all angles and production of a before alignment printout. The printout will highlight any problems and will be discussed with you. We will then carry out the alignment process, and once complete another printout will be given to you displaying the new alignments so you can view the difference made.
