As part of our commitment to ensuring safe and roadworthy vehicles to our customers, Jacksons Ford has a highly comprehensive selection of wheel alignment services available through our aftersales team.
Wheel alignment, or tracking, is a specific check that your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position. These specifications are set by your manufacturer and are fundamental to your vehicle running efficiently and effectively. If your wheel alignment is incorrect, it can impact many other component parts of your vehicle. The most commonly known outcome for incorrect alignment is quicker tyre wear. However, it can also affect the handling and safety of your vehicle.
Often it is every day driving that can affect wheel alignment. Unavoidable hazards like high kerbs or uneven terrain caused by large potholes are two of the most common causes of changes to wheel alignment. Regular checks of your vehicle’s wheel alignment could prolong the life of your tyres by up to 12,000 miles. Further, making sure your alignment is correct can increase fuel efficiency and improve steering controls, so we can’t stress enough the importance of getting wheel alignment checked regularly.

Q; I have hit a pot hole in the road what should i do ?
A;You should get a free of charge alignment check, and at the same time inspect the tyre,wheel, and other suspension components for any damage, the effects of hitting a pot hole can take many miles to show through and then it can be much more costly to rectify. In most cases if anything is required then its a simple readjustment of the suspension which is not too costly.
