Toyota Alignment Services in Santa Cruz, CA

When your vehicle’s alignment is off, it can have a significant impact on your safety. Misalignment affects the steering, durability of tires and the suspension; all of which can impact your safety. Different vehicle models have their alignment specifications, which are put in place by the manufacturer. Here at Santa Cruz Toyota in Santa Cruz County, we use a computerized alignment device that is pre-loaded with the alignment specifications of every vehicle model. We offer all types of wheel alignment services, including alignment checks, two-wheel alignments, and four-wheel alignments.

Signs of Misalignment

Proper wheel alignment is essential when comes to the protection of your tires, your vehicle and all the people inside the vehicle. It’s not always apparent that there are issues with the wheel alignment, but some signs to be aware of may include: your vehicle pulling to the right or the left, the tires wearing quickly and unevenly or a squealing sign while turning or accelerating.

What is an Alignment Check?

Alignment means that your vehicle’s suspension needs adjustments. The suspension is what ensures the tires are pointing straight down the road when the vehicle is properly aligned. If the alignment goes out, it leads to steering issues and irregular wear on the tires. An alignment check is a process of finding the misalignment and returning it to proper angles.

  • Caster – The suspension component that supports the tire and wheel assembly.
  • Camber – The inward or outward tilt of the tires when being viewed from the front.
  • Toe – The relationship between the tires front and rear end. The tires front end can be closer or farther from each other, depending on whether it is a front-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive vehicle.
