Car alignment, also known as wheel alignment, refers to the adjustment of the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Proper car alignment is essential for safe and efficient driving, as it ensures that the tires are pointing in the correct direction and making maximum contact with the road surface.
There are three main angles that are adjusted during a wheel alignment: camber, caster, and toe. Camber refers to the angle of the wheels in relation to the vertical axis. Caster refers to the angle of the steering axis in relation to the vertical axis. Toe refers to the angle of the wheels in relation to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle.
