At Bozard Ford Lincoln, we service many different makes and models of vehicles. Our services are primarily focused on Ford and Lincoln models, however. One of our most sought-after services is our Ford wheel alignment service. Our wheel alignment services consist of wheel alignment checks and the two most common types of wheel alignments, two-wheel alignments, and four-wheel alignments.
The overall goal of a wheel alignment is to align a vehicle's wheels back to the manufacturer’s original settings. In turn, the factory settings allow the vehicle to handle as expected and provide a comfortable ride to its occupants. The first step that our technicians take when customers bring in their vehicles for wheel alignments is to inspect the initial wheel alignment. During the wheel alignment inspection, our technicians gather data on the initial condition of a vehicle's suspension system. The data informs our technicians on what processes and steps they will need to take to re-align the vehicle’s wheels.
A two-wheel alignment is a wheel alignment where our technicians make adjustments solely to the front axle. Also known as a front-end alignment, two-wheel alignments are commonly done on vehicles that have solid rear axle designs. By its design, the rear wheels of solid rear axle vehicles are connected and cannot theoretically become misaligned with one another without major damage to the axle itself. During two-wheel alignments, our technicians will modify the camber, caster, and toe angle of each front wheel.
Much like during two-wheel alignments, when doing a four-wheel alignment, our technicians make modifications to the camber, caster, and toe angle of the wheels on a vehicle. However, rather than just on the two front wheels, each of the four wheels on a vehicle are adjusted during a four-wheel alignment. Unlike vehicles with solid-rear axles, four-wheel alignments are completed on vehicles with independent rear suspension systems. Additionally, vehicles that have all-wheel drive systems need to have four-wheel alignments done rather than two-wheel alignments.
