When your car travels straight down the road with little handling on your part, that’s due to your caster setting.
4 Wheel Alignment
AMERICA TRUSTS FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE WITH 9,000 WHEEL ALIGNMENTS EACH DAY.
4-WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES
Firestone Complete Auto Care performs 9,000 wheel alignments every day across the nation, and each one of those 4-wheel alignments improves the accuracy and precision of your vehicle's camber, caster and toe angles. Firestone Complete Auto Care recommends getting your alignment checked every 6 months or 6,000 miles. 4-wheel alignments should be checked at regular intervals.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A 4-WHEEL ALIGNMENT?
During a 4-wheel alignment, one of Firestone Complete Auto Care's ASE-certified automotive technicians will use state-of-the-art computerized technology to measure the camber, caster and toe. The technician will then adjust those angles (when applicable) to match vehicle manufacturer specifications, ensuring a smooth ride, even tire wear and efficient fuel economy. A front end alignment and rear end alignment will be completed during a 4-wheel alignment service.
Every 4-wheel alignment at Firestone Complete Auto Care includes inspection of your car's front and rear steering and suspension components. During every wheel alignment, a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will also verify tire size and adjust tire air pressure.
WHY DO CAMBER, CASTER, AND TOE ANGLES NEED ADJUSTMENT?
Every wheel has camber, caster and toe angles - when they are correctly aligned, your car drives straight. When the camber, caster and toe angles are misaligned, wheel alignment problems can arise. Your vehicle can pull to the left or right or your tires can wear unevenly. At a basic level, the camber angle, caster angle and toe angle keeps your tires, steering and overall vehicle driving straight and even.
