At Merx Truck & Trailer, when it comes to alignment, there’s no better technology alignment equipment than Hunter Alignment. Alignment technology is constantly updating, but Hunter Engineering Company consistently remains ahead of the curve with providing quick & easy assemblies with no damage to the wheel.
Our mechanics use Hunter Alignment equipment, arguably the best alignment equipment on the market, on each and every wheel alignment for precise measurements and accurate adjustments.
Hunter Alignment equipment allows for greater profit and productivity through state-of-the-art technology and innovative computer-based car alignment equipment. Our mechanics are able to locate alignment issues within a few minutes. The procedure includes chocking wheels, mounting targets, setting air pressure, rolling wheels forward to compensate sensors, and scanning VIN for specs and wheel steer specifications. After the wheel alignment procedure, results print out automatically, so mechanics can make the necessary alignment adjustments with exact precision.
- Improved Handling
Does your truck pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride. When either or both wheels are misaligned, they may pull your truck slightly to the side. You have to compensate while driving by constantly adjusting the steering wheel. With a proper alignment, there won’t be any drift to the side and you won’t have to compensate. If you don’t have to constantly make adjustments, you’re able to enjoy going down the road a little more.
- Extended Tire Life
Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. Even a slight drag from misalignment can cause uneven and excess wear, forcing you to purchase tires more frequently than you otherwise would.
- Better Fuel Mileage
Fuel mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Misaligned tires don’t roll as they’re designed to but instead drag slightly across the road. This effect reduces fuel efficiency by up to 10%. That amount is noticeable in any vehicle, but it’s particularly substantial when you drive a truck because these vehicles tend to have lower fuel economies than many other models to start with.
- Safer Driving
Finally and most importantly, having properly aligned tires is an essential part of maintaining a safe vehicle. Because the suspension affects steering, it can impact your ability to control your truck while driving. The impact and danger are more pronounced at high speeds — when colliding with another vehicle, a stationary object, or an animal is extremely dangerous. This benefit alone justifies having an alignment done whenever your truck’s wheels are misaligned. Accidents can result in hundreds or thousands of dollars in expenses, and their true cost frequently goes beyond mere dollars. When injuries are at risk, the responsible thing to do is have the necessary service done.
With Hunter Alignment equipment, we guarantee precise wheel alignments performed right the first time. We believe that our customers deserve the best wheel alignment service possible, provided though the best alignment equipment available.
