The Process for 4 Wheel Computer Alignment
Our equipment offers ‘Total Alignment’ which is far more accurate than most garages offering standard tracking or laser alignment. We are one of the only garages in the West Midlands to have this new technology to offer our customers. Our equipment is equipped with CodeLink®. Many new models have a steering wheel angle sensor on the steering wheel, which the CodeLink® diagnostics equipment enables us to calibrate and reset the vehicles steering wheel geometry to ensure the steering wheel is perfectly centralised.
Print out given to customers showing all data settings as per manufacturers specifications.
If a vehicle is equipped with CodeLink® then we will also provide a printout. Over 25 million vehicles require Steering Angle Sensors reset and this figure is growing. All vehicles should be manufactured with Electronic Stability Control. Many will require a SAS reset and we can reset all models with our CodeLink®.
Frequently Asked Questions
Please find below a selection of FAQs. If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
- Tracking and 4 wheel alignment, are they the same?
Tracking is an out of date system which many garages still use and fails to cure the tyre wear and off set steering wheel problems on a modern car. Tracking only measures one angle and only the front wheels are adjusted.
Tracking checks across the axle for total toe using a light or laser beam or older equipment with a ‘scope’, there is no test for run out compensation which means that the reading will only be approximate.
4 wheel computer alignment is the only recognised system by vehicle manufacturers to align a modern vehicle. Many vehicles have diagnostics which also must be reset as part of the wheel alignment process. 4 wheel alignment gives a measurement of no less than 12 angles. Run out compensation is measured to check for buckled wheels, the steering wheel is accurately set level and locked in position while the adjustment is carried out on all four wheels if applicable.
All vehicles must be set to factory alignment settings using data supplied by the manufacturers.+
- My steering wheel is off centre and my tyres are wearing on the inside shoulders?
The steering wheel fault is common when only tracking has been performed and the adjustment on the track rod ends is not level. Excessive inner tyre wear is normally due to excessive toe-out, which will normally show on both tyres on the same axle.+
- What will 4 Wheel Alignment cost me?
The cost depends on how much adjustment your vehicle needs and how much time is needed to complete the job. We offer a ‘free’ check with no obligation and we will confirm the cost of the adjustment once we have the initial measurement.+
- Can you guarantee to solve the problem?
We do give a guarantee with all wheel alignment, but generally, if your car does not drive correctly after an adjustment it normally means the car has a mechanical fault or bent components. However, if this is the case, we should be able to diagnose the problem for you.+
- Can you align my car with worn tyres?
We can still accurately adjust your vehicle with worn tyres, but we always recommend to replace any tyres worn below 1.6mm tread depth. Worn tyres can seriously effect the handling of the vehicle, especially at high speed, so replacing them before the wheel alignment is always the best idea.+
- Has your equipment got the correct alignment data for my car?
Yes. We have an enormous database directly from the manufacturers. This is updated on a regular basis. On rare occasions, some new models or imports may not be on our database. However, we have access to webspecs that allow us to download the information immediately online.+
- Do I need to get my wheel alignment checked on a regular basis?
It is recommended to get your wheel alignment checked annually or every 15,000 miles. If you have any steering components replaced or if you hit a pot hole or kerb, then call in for a ‘free check’. It could save you a lot of money.+
