Wheel Alignment












Potholes and rough road surfaces don’t just make for a bad ride, they can affect the alignment of your wheels. Misaligned wheels can cause a host of problems, including uneven tire wear. Proper wheel alignment helps your tires last longer, improves gas mileage, and provides safer handling.

That’s what Bayside Automotive Repair is all about – helping you get the most out of your car, for as long as you own it.

Signs of Poor Alignment
Scheduling Maintenance
If your vehicle needs an alignment, you'll notice the following:
  • A steering wheel that shakes at certain speeds
  • A constant need to correct your steering to keep the vehicle moving in a straight line
  • Uneven wear on your tires
  • Vibration in the steering column at higher speeds

There are several ways your car can be knocked out of proper alignment. Every driver at one time or another has done one of these:
  • Run over a curb
  • Hit a pothole
  • Run over or collided with a parking barrier
  • Hit a speed bump while moving too fast
  • Hit another vehicle


All of these can knock your wheels out of alignment. If your car has perfect alignment before you hit that pothole, but drifts to the left or right afterward, you know your vehicle's alignment has been altered. It's not an emergency condition, but driving your car with bad alignment can cause premature wear and tear on the suspension system and the tires.
