What Is Truck And Trailer Alignment, And Why Is It Important?

Misaligned trucks and trailers can cause uneven tire wear, decreased fuel efficiency, and reduced handling and stability. Proper alignment ensures equal weight distribution among the axles, improving safety and overall performance. Additionally, regular alignment reduces strain on the vehicle's suspension system and can prevent premature breakdowns. Investing in alignment services is a proactive measure that maintains the truck's value and operational capability.

How Often Do Trucks And Trailers Need Alignment?

Alignment should be checked at least once a year, or sooner if you notice any signs of misalignment, such as uneven tire wear or pulling to one side. This frequency ensures that even minor deviations are corrected, maintaining optimal drivability. For vehicles in constant use or those frequently driving on rough terrains, more frequent checks may be necessary to counteract the harsher impact on alignment.

What Causes Misalignment In Trucks And Trailers?

Misalignment can be caused by many factors, including driving on rough roads, hitting potholes, and even minor collisions. Regular maintenance and alignment checks can help identify and prevent misalignment issues. Common alignment repairs include:

Adjusting the Toe Angle: Misalignment can cause the front wheels to point inwards (Toe in/positive) or outwards (Toe out/negative). We can adjust the toe angle to ensure proper alignment.

Adjusting the Camber Angle: If the wheels tilt inwards or outwards from vertical, we can adjust the camber angle to correct the tilt. These adjustments ensure even tire wear.

Adjusting the Caster Angle: The caster angle affects steering stability and can be adjusted to ensure proper alignment.

Aligning Trailers: Improper fifth wheel alignment can cause misalignment for trailers. We can fix this by properly aligning the trailer hitch and kingpin.

Replacing Worn Parts: Worn or damaged suspension components, bearings, or bushings can cause misalignment. We can replace these parts to restore proper alignment.
