If I Hit a Pothole, Does My Car Need an Alignment?

pothole

Well, maybe…

You’ll notice right away if your car’s suspension has been compromised — bent struts or crooked wheels or broken tie rods, stabilizer links, control arms or ball joints call for immediate attention to prevent further damage.

But don’t ignore some of the more subtle signs that something is amiss, such as a crooked steering wheel or vibration when the car is driving down the road. If it pulls to the left or right or even if there is passive pulling and your car naturally “drifts” without a hand on the steering wheel, these are all signs that your vehicle may be out of alignment.

Uneven tire wear or noticeable differences in wear patterns between the two front tires or the back two tires can also indicate a problem. If the alignment is off, your tires will wear out faster. A four wheel alignment will not only prolong the life of your tires and prevent their warranty from being voided due to improper maintenance, but it will also reduce wear on the steering column and improve your gas mileage and how your car handles.

Take advantage of this month’s alignment specials and let our Undercar Specialists at House of Mufflers & Brakes get things straightened out for you!  Providing Total Car Care in the Omaha metro area for over 46 years.

                                    TAKE IT 2 THE HOUSE!
