One of the best ways to keep your Kia running smoothly is to ensure you’re getting regular tire alignments. A lot of people don’t think about this as being a crucial part of car maintenance. Still, if you don’t have your tires aligned regularly, you could seriously damage your car.

How Are Alignments Done?
The first step is to measure and adjust the camber, caster, and toe angles. These angles determine how well the tires align with the car. Too much or little adjustment can cause problems, so getting these angles right is essential.
Next, the technician measures and adjusts the ride height. This ensures that the car rides level and doesn’t pull to one side or another.
After that, the technician tweaks the shocks and springs to ensure they’re working correctly. This helps keep the car stable while driving and prevents bouncing or swaying.
What Are the Camber, Toe, and Caster?
The camber, toe, and caster are three of the most important aspects of tire alignment.
