Well, a wheel alignment is actually a suspension alignment which involves fine-tuning the angles of the suspension system so the wheels are literally pointed in the right direction. It’s always beneficial to have your car’s wheels pointed in the right direction!
A wheel alignment isn’t usually listed as a regular maintenance item, but there are a few times it should be checked: when suspension parts are replaced, if there are obvious signs of misalignment (such as the steering wheel being cocked to one side when the vehicle is going straight), or if the vehicle consistently pulls to one side.
Wheel alignments may not be as vital as say, oil changes, but now and again they are absolutely necessary. Where can you get a reliable wheel alignment in Kansas City without going to a tire store?
