Alignment & Suspension
Alignment, Front End Alignment, 4 Wheel Alignment or Wheel Alignment; no matter what you call it, these are different names for the same service. Aligning a car or truck simply means adjusting the steering geometry to the manufacturer’s specifications so that the vehicle drives straight down the road. In a traditional front end alignment, the front wheels are adjusted, while in a four wheel alignment, the front and the rear wheels are both aligned.
And while it sounds simple, adjusting today’s vehicles can involve a complex series of measurements and a number of different steering and suspension components. Along with our ASE Certified Master Technicians, Marathon Automotive has one on the most accurate alignment machines anywhere. As a matter of fact, our’s is one of the few machines to be certified accurate enough for Mercedes Benz. Any time you install a new set of tires it is a good idea to have your vehicle’s alignment checked.
