For Volkswagen owners in Bensenville and nearby locations, we welcome you to bring your vehicle to our service center of Larry Roesch Volkswagen. As an authorized service center for Volkswagen vehicles, we carry genuine OEM Volkswagen parts and accessories. For nearby locations, we serve the cities of Addison, Itasca, Villa Park, and Franklin Park. We have all the latest technology and equipment for auto services, including inspection, repair, and replacement service. One of our most popular services for tire health is the four-wheel alignment service, which is the most common type of alignment service required by most vehicles.
As the first step of alignment service, our technicians will measure the angles of the suspension using computerized technology. The angles of the suspension include the camber, toe, caster, and thrust angles. These angles determine the orientation of the wheels. Depending on the measurements, our technicians will adjust the angles according to factory specifications. The goal is to have all the wheels pointing forward when the steering wheel is straight. The benefit of alignment service is that the tires are allowed to wear evenly, resulting in improved handling, better braking performance, and maximized tire longevity. It also helps reduce excessive stress on other components of the steering and suspension system.
Four-wheel alignment service is mostly required by a vehicle that has an independent suspension system. Whether you have a front-wheel-drive or rear-wheel drive vehicle, most types of vehicles require a four-wheel-drive alignment. This also includes four-wheel vehicles (4WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). For a two-wheel alignment service, only the front wheels are aligned as the rear axle is rigid and doesn’t require alignment service unless it can be damaged. Our technicians can guide you on the type of alignment required by your vehicle.
If you notice uneven tread wear of the tires, crooked steering wheeling when driving straight, squealing tires, noisy steering, or if your vehicle tends to drift to one side, these are common signs of misaligned suspension.
