Volkswagen Wheel Alignment Service in Countryside, IL

Volkswagen is known for manufacturing vehicles with smooth handling, comfort, and excellent safety. Getting the smoothest and safest driving experience with the longest-lasting tires requires that the wheels are in alignment with the steering/suspension components according to factory specifications. We provide Volkswagen owners with certified wheel alignment services that promote the best driving experience. Our certified technicians operate computerized alignment equipment to ensure precise wheel angles – camber, caster, and toe-in – to factory specifications, so contact us today to schedule your next wheel alignment service.

Wheel Alignment Detailed

Wheel alignment describes how the wheel assemblies are angled relative to the vehicle. The camber, caster, and toe-in angles guide how the wheels are pointed and grip the road. Wheels in alignment are pointed straight with opposite wheels parallel and perpendicular to the road for optimal traction. Wheel alignment shifts out of specifications due to hitting potholes, nudging curbs while parking, or from component loosening with enough miles. Wheel alignment services restore the wheels’ angles to factory specifications by adjusting the suspension.

Wheel Alignment Checks

The best wheel alignment maintenance strategy includes getting routine wheel alignment checks to detect misalignment before it causes tire-related driving problems. We use computerized wheel alignment equipment to measure wheel angles; vehicles with misaligned wheels can get the wheel alignment service needed to restore specifications.

 

Two-Wheel & Four-Wheel Alignment Service

Wheel alignment maintenance comes in two varieties: two-wheel and four-wheel service. Two-wheel alignment is applied to vehicles with front-wheel drivetrains (2WD); Service involves adjusting the suspension at the front two wheels. Four-wheel alignment is applied to vehicles with four-wheel or all-wheel drivetrains (4WD/AWD).
