State of the Art Alignment equipment.Front End, 2 and 4 Wheels alignments for Apex, Cary, Holly Springs.


We are the sublet alignment source for body shops.  Body shops often send out their alignments, it goes on the sublet line of their estimate.

Wheel alignment is the position of the wheels relative to your car.  When properly aligned, the wheels point in the right direction. Without proper alignment, the wheels resist your steering commands, as well as each other. Alignment also affects gas mileage and tire wear. If your tires are pointed in different directions, they fight against each other and can cause tread wear.

Computerized alignment equipment is used to measure all alignment angles on today's cars. These include both adjustable and non-adjustable angles. (Non-adjustable angles require repair or replacement of the suspension component.) The most common adjustable angles are:


Toe

This refers to the tilted direction of the wheels toward or away from one another when viewed from the top. Toe is the most critical tire wearing angle. Tires that "toe-in" point toward one another. Tires that "toe-out" point away from each other.


Camber

This refers to the tilt of the wheels toward or away from one another when viewed from the front. Wheels that tilt in toward the vehicle have "negative camber." Wheels that tilt away from the vehicle have "positive camber."


Caster

This refers to the angle of the steering axis in relation to an imaginary vertical line through the center of the wheel when viewed from the side. "Positive caster" is the term used when the vertical line is tilted back toward the rear. If it's tilted forward, we call it "negative caster." The proper caster angle stabilizes your car for better steering.


Custom Tuning Suspension


Mustang Suspension TuningAlignment for most cars are preset, but the tuning aspect can mean spring rates, ride height, suspension travel and yes, tires.

Sway bars are critical for tuning suspension and developing the type of flat cornering you can feel immediately.

Aggressive driving requires an aggressive suspension. With proper tuning, we can make an older car ride and handle like a newer car by using newer technologies.  Sway bars create a counter twist or counter pressure that limits body movement/weight transfer.  The rule of thumb here is:  The end of the car that has the least amount of body roll will transfer the most weight.  When turning in a corner, this weight transfer can be adjusted through the sway bars.

Push/tight is the front of the car transferring the most weight, over steer/loose in a corner is the rear of the car transferring the most weight.

Tuning your suspension may be overkill in some cases but, its a sweet ride that handles as well as it accelerates.
