Alignment Services

Have you noticed uneven tire wear? Or while driving have you noticed: an off-center steering wheel? swaying, drifting or pulling? difficult steering? Any of these symptoms may indicate the need for service or repairs to your vehicle's steering and suspension system.

At Holmberg Automotive, we have certified technicians who will perform a professional inspection of the system, providing you with a complete analysis of the current conditions and repair cost estimate. Holmberg Automotive is a full-service steering and suspension repair facility.

A properly-aligned vehicle can protect you from spending hundreds of dollars in tire replacement and suspension repairs. That's why we recommend having your vehicle's alignment checked every 6 months or 6,000 miles. At
Holmberg Automotive, certified technicians perform alignments using the latest computerized technology for state-of-the-art accuracy.

There are two types of alignments performed based on the vehicle's construction:

1. All-Wheel Full Adjustable Alignment
For vehicles with adjustable rear suspensions, we adjust the front and rear wheels perfectly parallel to the vehicle's geometric centerline. The results are four wheels parallel with the steering wheel perfectly centered.

2. All-Wheel Thrust Angle Alignment
For vehicles with non-adjustable rear suspension, we determine the rear wheels' thrust line (the direction in which they push) and then adjust the front wheels to be perfectly parallel with the rear thrust line. The results are front wheels precisely aligned with the thrust line of the rear wheels, all four wheels parallel and the steering wheel perfectly centered.
