Does it seem like your steering wheel is pulling to the side when you are cruising down the highway? Did something suddenly feel wrong after hitting that huge pothole? A wheel alignment completed by the Service Center at Sunset Ford in St. Louis will get you, and your vehicle pointed in the right direction. Since we are centrally located, you can knock out this quick errand before heading into work in St. Charles or Florissant.
It only takes a few minutes to run a quick wheel alignment inspection to determine if you need an actual adjustment. Our laser-aligned station is positioned right where you drop off your car. We roll it onto the pad, enter the make and model of your ride and it measures the angles of every wheel. If everything is within specifications, you can simply drive away. If it does need an alignment, the job usually takes between one and two hours.
You will only need a two-wheel alignment if your vehicle has a solid front or rear axle. If you have an independent suspension on all four corners, it will need a four-wheel alignment. Most cars on the road today need the four-wheel version. If you only have two wheels adjusted on your all-wheel-drive vehicle, it can result in premature tire wear, damage to the suspension, and uneven wear on your steering system. Always sign up for the alignment that is recommended for your car, truck, or SUV.
Winters are rough on the roads in Missouri. That is why your owner’s manual suggests that you have a four-wheel alignment completed for your Ford Escape or F-150 4X4 every spring. The alignment ensures that your tires are properly angled to keep the car rolling straight while the tire clears the fender wells even when taking a corner. Regularly aligning your wheels extends the life of every moving part in your suspension and the tires. It is easy to add an alignment to your service order when you bring in your ride for a regular oil change or tire rotation
It only takes a minute to select a date and time for your alignment when you use the Service Department online scheduler at Sunset Ford. We know that all of our neighbors as far out as Chesterfield and Fenton turn to us for fast, friendly, and reliable service. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
