You can bring your vehicle to our service center at Colonial Honda of Dartmouth for four-wheel alignment service from our Honda certified technicians. We are close to the cities of Fairhaven, Fall River, Westport, and New Bedford. We are proud to have gained our customers’ trust by delivering excellence in customer service, auto care, and providing 100% genuine OEM parts. One of our most commonly used auto services is the wheel alignment service. We offer four-wheel and two-wheel alignment at our service center. The service is performed by experienced and certified technicians using the latest in tools, equipment, and technology.
In a four-wheel alignment service, all four wheels of the vehicle are adjusted for misalignment. This service is different from a two-wheel alignment service, in which only the front wheels of the vehicle are adjusted. The type of alignment service required depends on the type of vehicle. Alignment service is performed by adjusting the angles of the suspension. These angles determine the orientation of the wheels relative to the steering system and other wheels of the vehicle.
Your vehicle’s wheels can get misaligned by hitting an obstacle on the road, such as a pothole or through an auto collision. The wheels can also get misaligned through regular wear and tear of components. Our technician can use computerized equipment to measure the angles of the suspension to determine if the wheels have been misaligned.
Wheel misalignment can lead to uneven tread wear resulting in poor handling and braking performance of the vehicle. With uneven tread wear, the tires might also need to be replaced earlier than expected. The misalignment of wheels puts excessive stress on the steering and suspension components, but it can be dangerous for the vehicle to steer to one side when driving.
