Illinois trusted alignment specialists

Have you been noticing your vehicle pulls to one side or the other when driving? If so, then that means you have an issue with your alignment. The alignment of your vehicle can grow out of whack, and when that happens, it can make steering difficult. At Pit Shop Auto Repair, we’ve fixed the alignments of many vehicles, and can fix yours too.

We Offer State-of-the-Art Computerized Alignment

Technology and computers have changed the way that practically everything in the world is done, including mechanic work. Alignments aren’t done completely by hand anymore, instead, modern mechanics employ some of the most sophisticated auto-diagnostic equipment available today. When you bring your vehicle into our Maryland auto shop, we’ll be able to use our computers to perfectly align your wheels. Between our know-how and top-notch computer diagnostic software, there’s no job we can’t do.

Misaligned Wheels Are Dangerous

If you’ve ever driven a vehicle with a messed up alignment, then you know what it feels like when your car is moving and you’re not steering it. Misaligned wheels will pull in one direction, forcing you to compensate in the opposite direction on the steering wheel. Whenever this happens, you want to get your alignment checked out as soon as possible. The issue could grow worse, and could lead to an accident, something nobody wants.

How Often Should You Have Your Wheels Aligned?

The answer to this question depends on what kind of car you drive, as well as what brand of tire you have. You can find specific recommendations for your vehicle and tires in your owner’s booklet or manufacturer guide. You can also find manufacturer’s recommendations online. Having said all that, there are some general guidelines you can follow. If you ever feel your vehicle lurching one way or the other, have it looked at. Otherwise, we advise you have your wheels aligned yearly.

Damaged Roads Can Disturb Your Alignment

The quickest way to mess up your vehicle’s alignment is to drive on a damaged road. Living in Illinois, our roads aren’t always in the best of conditions; so you may find you need to have your wheels aligned somewhat frequently. Hitting just one pothole can be enough to disrupt your alignment, especially if it’s a big one, so be observant while driving.
