Alignment Services
Wheel alignment, a fundamental aspect of regular car maintenance, entails the precise adjustment of wheel angles to align with the manufacturer's specifications. This process ensures that your suspension and steering systems operate at optimal angles, ultimately reducing tire wear. Alignment is a complex task and our skilled experts who excel in this field can guarantee precision and quality.

Alignment FAQs

How long does a full alignment take?

Wheel alignments typically take one hour for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. However, excessive wear and tear on suspension components like bushings, track rods, or the system itself can require replacements, extending the service time.

What happens if you wait too long for an alignment?

Tire alignment is crucial for maintaining optimal tire performance and lifespan. Even slight misalignments, undetectable to the naked eye but measurable in tenths of degrees or hundredths of inches, can lead to premature and uneven wear. As time passes, this wear becomes more pronounced, impacting both safety and fuel efficiency. To avoid these issues, regular alignment checks every 6,000 miles are recommended.

What is checked during an alignment?

Three crucial aspects are assessed during a tire alignment inspection: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to the angle formed by the vertical axis of the tire and a line perpendicular to the road surface, as viewed from the front. When the top of the tire tilts inwards, creating an "X" shape with the wheels, it's considered negative camber. This can increase wear on the tire's inner edge through increased friction.

Do I need an alignment after replacing tires?

The answer is yes! A proper wheel alignment ensures precise angles between wheels and the road, maximizing tire life, enhancing handling, and distributing wear evenly across the tread. This translates to better fuel efficiency, safer driving, and a more enjoyable ride.

Car became disabled out in Rockaway so Geico Roadside Assistance picked me up. They recommended Dependable which thankfully was the perfect call. They took me in and got right to work on emergency repairs. Super convenient for anyone living in or near Ridgewood and the staff was super friendly and consistent with repair updates. Looking forward to coming back, hopefully next time with an appointment and not a breakdown!

It's hard to find an honest mechanic these days. Jose stands behind his work and his warranty. Our car had issues that were covered under his warranty and he made the repair at no cost to us. You can't put a price on integrity.

I went to Dependable to have my alternator replaced after another mechanic had given me a cheap part three months before. Jose and his team were super fast with the job. They kept me informed and updated about the car, and worked with me regarding the manufacturer warranty for the alternator. The price was also super reasonable. I would definitely work with them again.
