What is Car Alignment?

Mechanics Aligning Vehicle

If you notice that your vehicle feels a little off-kilter as you make your way through Round Rock and Huttle roads, you may find that your car needs an alignment. So, what is a car alignment you may ask? While you might think the problem is with your wheels, a car alignment is actually geared more toward your car’s suspension. Alignment is when the suspension is altered to point your wheels into specific angles. Having this done ensures better handling and performance, and ensures your tires wear evenly.
