The designers and engineers at Mitsubishi have determined the correct alignments for your wheels to provide an optimal drive. When your vehicle is new, its wheels are aligned with precision; however, they do not stay this way. Wheels can lose their alignment quickly if you are in a collision or hit a large obstacle like a curb or a pothole. Even if you manage to avoid any of these, your wheels will become misaligned slowly as you drive; even the minor bumps in the road work to knock your wheels out of alignment.
If the wheels on your Mitsubishi model are not aligned as they should be, it's not always easy to notice at first. However, as the wheels become less aligned, there are certain symptoms that may show. You may find yourself more fatigued after a drive, or you may notice that the steering wheel pulls to one side or the other. If you continue to drive with improperly aligned wheels, your tires will likely begin to wear down unevenly and prematurely.
If your vehicle has a solid rear axle, it may only need a two-wheel alignment. However, many Mitsubishi models have four-wheel independent suspension. In cases like these, all-wheel alignment is preferred.
When you bring your Mitsubishi to Oakes Mitsubishi for an all-wheel alignment, our technicians will check the camber, toe, and caster angles. If these are not in line with factory specifications, we will use precision instruments to bring them back into alignment.
We recommend having an all-wheel alignment service once a year or every 15,000 miles -- whichever comes first. Of course, if you notice signs of misaligned wheels, you should come in sooner. Schedule your alignment service online or over the phone at Oakes Mitsubishi!
