Computerised wheel alignment

A vehicle’s geometry/alignment will require adjustment from time to time. Whether this is following a suspension/steering repair, to rectify uneven tyre wear or the steering wheel not being centralised, we are here to help.

With our state of the art Hunter DSP 600 4 wheel alignment bay, we are able to re-align the vehicle back to the original factory specification (where possible) assuming no serious accident damage or worn suspension components. Our equipment is calibrated by the manufacturer at least once per annum and the software is fully up to date. Certification available to view in main reception.

Most tyre replacement companies can perform re-alignments but generally this only relates to front and rear wheel tracking? This is not an accurate solution and can still lead to abnormal tyre wear and poor handling characteristics.

Our factory trained Motor Vehicle Technicians are qualified to make the necessary adjustments and fully understand the way in which each adjustment (track/toe, camber, caster*) on both front and rear axles and how it affects the vehicles behaviour on the road and tyre wear as a consequence.

* Caster only applicable to front axle.

Computer four-wheel alignment will measure each wheel individually and then display current readings to allow adjustment within manufacturers specification which will transform your vehicle’s handling characteristics, tyre wear and fuel efficiency.

Any of the following situations can affect both the cornering and straight line performance of a vehicle:

  • New steering and suspension parts installed
  • Damage caused by an accident
  • Driving over pot-holes or hitting kerbs
  • Incorrect tracking adjustments
  • Installing different component parts (eg. coil overs)
  • Fitting aftermarket or uprated suspension bushes

The symptoms you may experience are:

  • Pulling to either the right or left hand side of the road
  • The car seems to be unstable when cornering
  • Steering requires frequent work/input via steering wheel
  • Poor traction in corners
  • Steering is unusually light or heavy
  • Steering wheel is not "straight"
  • Excessive tyre wear

Computerised alignment takes approximately 2 hours for diagnostic checks and adjustments. The vehicle is placed on a platform, which allows the wheels to turn while a computer calculates orientation.

The computer compares this to a database of manufacturer specifications for the year, make and model of the car. If the alignment is out of specification, an adjustment is made and checked on the computer screen showing current measurements.

Re-alignment is then followed by recalibration of traction system where necessary and an extensive road test - this can be completed individually, or included with any of our service packages.

Please Note: Vehicles may require ADAS calibration following an alignment procedure; Subject to vehicle specification. This is an additional procedure that is not included within the price of a standard 4 wheel alignment.


No gimmicks, just honest, reliable and efficient service for you and your vehicle.
