Types of Misalignment: Camber and Toe
Camber and toe misalignment are two of the most common types of misalignments. Camber refers to the angle of your tire as it sits perpendicular to the ground, while the toe is the frontward-facing angle of your wheels. Positive camber can lead to premature wear, while negative camber can increase the risk of rollovers. Misaligned toe angles can cause tire screeching and handling issues, putting stress on your tie rods and steering column.
Symptoms of Misalignment
It may be misaligned if your truck displays symptoms such as pulling to one side, uneven tire wear, poor handling, or shaking in your steering column. Ignoring these signs can lead to costly suspension and tire damage and replacements. To prevent these issues, getting your truck aligned every 30,000 miles by trained mechanics is crucial—or you could enlist in our preventive maintenance program and forget about your truck alignment service interval altogether.
