The reason you enjoy a smooth, bumpy-free ride, is that there is a whole system of springs, shock absorbers and struts that are working full time to allow the passenger compartment to literally float along while they absorb all or most of the jarring caused be bumps and potholes on the road. They also provide a serious function of making sure that the wheels are both tracking straight ahead and are at the correct angle. This is called, “proper alignment” and is very important for the longevity of your tires. Uneven tire wear and the vehicle pulling to one side or the other are tell-tale signs of the vehicles suspension system being out of alignment.
If you are noticing your tires are wearing on one side or the other, your vehicle is noticeably lower on one side than the other when it is parked, or your ride is getting progressively more bumpy, is is time for us to check your suspension system.
Atlantic Tire and Service have certified technicians who will perform a professional inspection of the system, providing you with a complete analysis of the current conditions. We are a full-service steering and suspension repair facility.
A properly aligned vehicle can protect you from spending hundreds of dollars in tire replacement and suspension repairs. That’s why we recommend having your vehicle’s alignment checked every 6 months or 6,000 miles. Atlantic Tire and Service perform alignments using computerized technology for accuracy.
