Jeffcoats Automotive utilizes the Hunter Hawkeye Pro Aligner System

This is a state-of-the-art system with laser technology to ensure correct alignment on your vehicle the first time. No matter how complex your vehicle’s suspension system is, at Jeffcoats Automotive, we can make sure your vehicle alignment is done according to your manufacturer’s guidelines.

If your vehicle’s wheels don’t point in the same direction, it affects handling, chews up your tires, and batters your suspension system. That’s why it’s a good idea to have your alignment checked periodically by a professional and every time you buy new tires.

A few reasons why you should get your vehicle alignment checked

  • Safety – A wheel alignment corrects steering problems, such as pulling to one side, and tire contact issues. If your tires don’t make good contact with the pavement, you lose ride control.
  • Tire Life – Tires are expensive. They last longer when they wear evenly. Wheel alignment and regular tire rotations prevent premature wear. Patterns that indicate you need a vertical alignment include tread wear on the inside or outside edges.
  • Fuel Efficiency – A wheel alignment can significantly improve your fuel efficiency because your wheels no longer fight each other for directional control.
  • Preventative Maintenance – Problems with steering and alignment impact the suspension system and vice versa. By keeping your wheels properly aligned, you avoid damage and premature wear of suspension components. In fact, your vehicle might need new shocks or struts—which affect ride height—before a technician can properly perform an alignment.

You may need an alignment if your vehicle is

  • Pulling to one side or the other
  • Wandering on a level, straight road
  • Uneven tire wear
  • Crooked steering wheel

How your wheels got out of alignment

  • Potholes
  • Rough shoulders
  • Curbs
  • Normal wear of steering and suspension components
