Services That We Offer
We specialize in lifted Trucks, Jeeps, and SUVs. Our in house alignments are preformed using a Hunter Laser System Alignment Machine. We adjust Caster, Camber, and Toe in the front & Thrust angle in the rear. Lifted vehicles are very different than those not lifted when it comes to alignments. Bigger tires can affect the alignment outcome if not correctly setup.If you are noticing uneven tire wear, a pull or drift to one side we suggest you schedule an alignment. Vehicles with issues only get worse without proper maintenance.
