If your car is shaking, vibrating, or pulling, you may have been told you need an alignment. But what does that mean, and why is it important? Matthey Automotive in Collingswood and Cherry Hill, NJ has the answers you're looking for.

Alignments can be necessary after a shock to your front wheels, like running through a pothole or hitting a curb, and are also simply necessary from time to time as a part of regular maintenance. Essentially, the suspension and front end assembly of your car are comprised of many different components, which keep your tires centered and resting flat on the pavement. When things wear out or move minute amounts over a fairly long period of time, it’s necessary to reset your front end components to get your car, truck, or SUV driving straight again.

How do you know when to get a tire alignment. There are some good indicators of tires that are in need of an alignment. If you notice uneven tread wear, your vehicle pulling either direction, steering wheel vibration, or unevenness of your steering wheel when driving straight, it's time to get an alignment. 

Alignments are important for a variety of reasons. Poorly aligned vehicles pull to one direction or the other or vibrate while driving down the road, causing unnecessary wear and tear on parts, and generally ruining your driving experience. A poorly aligned front end also destroys tires, typically wearing them out rapidly on the inside tread. Besides causing expensive issues, alignment problems are unsafe and annoying.

Alignments themselves are fast and cheap. Considering the hundreds of dollars you will avoid spending on replacement tires and suspension parts, and the dramatic improvement in the drive quality of your vehicle, an alignment is an excellent investment. Our mechanics will align your wheels and front end quickly, and do it right. Come by Matthey Automotive in Collingswood and Cherry Hill and get your alignment troubles taken care of today!
