Aligning your wheels ensures your tires are angled correctly - parallel to one another, parallel to the ground, and pointing straight ahead - so they maintain straight-line tracking. A proper alignment angle can help you make the most of the life of your tires. You will also be able to drive your car more comfortably. The alignment of wheels and tires is arguably the most important part of their maintenance. A wheel's alignment is determined by three angles: toe, caster, and camber. Toe refers to the distance between the wheels. Tires should be parallel and equally spaced. Caster, or the angle at which the wheels pivot, allows the wheels to roll along with the steering wheel. A wheel's camber is a measurement that indicates the angle at which it should be perpendicular to the ground. In order to extend the life of your tires, four-wheel alignments are essential, as misaligned tires will cause the tires to perform poorly and fade unevenly.
Misaligned wheels can pose difficulty with vehicle handling. In most cases, a four-wheel alignment is the best choice, particularly if you have front-wheel drive. Wheels may become misaligned through car accidents or hitting potholes or curbs. It's easy to pick up on signs that indicate it's time for an alignment. An alignment is in order if your car pulls strongly to one side. An abnormal tire wear pattern is another sign. Properly aligned wheels save fuel because they roll more smoothly. Your tires will also last longer if your wheels are aligned properly. Contact us today to get a four-wheel alignment.
A vehicle's wheels may become misaligned if hit hard by an obstacle in the road or a pothole. Symptoms of needing realignment may arise due to worn and shifting parts in the wheel assembly and suspension. Proper alignment of the vehicle will improve its efficiency. An alignment could save your life if you have to make a quick turn or dodge something on the road. Here are some symptoms of a bad alignment:

L&D Auto offers wheel alignment, just call us to make an appointment
Most manufacturers recommend getting your wheels aligned once a year or every 10,000 - 20,000 miles. Hence, it's a good idea to have your tires aligned in accordance with the manufacturer's recommended service interval that most closely matches your vehicle's operating conditions and your driving habits. It is generally recommended to perform wheel alignment inspections when:
L&D Auto provides all-wheel, front-wheel and four-wheel alignment services. An alignment service includes the following:
The alignment of a two-wheel vehicle takes about one hour on average, not including time spent waiting. If any components other than the steering bushing, suspension or suspension bushings are damaged or showing too much play, it could take longer since various components may need to be replaced.
You should check the alignment of your car frequently, especially after an accident and after an impact to the wheel, for example hit a pothole or bump. For more information about our car alignment services, please contact our ASE Certified Technicians at L&D Auto.
A single alignment only checks one set of wheels. Most auto repair shops charge between $50 and $100 for this service. A full alignment checks both sets of wheels. Most shops will charge around $150-200 for this service. However, this isn't the same for all wheel alignments. If a car is highly complicated or requires special equipment, a mechanic may have to charge more.
If it's been more than 6 months or 6,000 miles since your last alignment check, it may be about time for L&D Auto to perform a wheel alignment. Visit us to have our ASE-certified mechanics provide you with proper wheel alignment.
Took my BMW 325ci here after a previous mechanic botched a no start job. Jose was extremely helpful and fixed above and beyond what was needed. Only fixed what was needed very honest. Highly recommend.
I'm not from KC and my Jeep broke down while I was there. The tow company recommended them and they were FANTASTIC. Very courteous, fair priced and got me back on the road within an hour. Thank you so much for the help!!

I have referred my two god daughter to them for service on their vehicles, and they were both satisfied.I always checked other repair shop for estimates on the same job before going to L&D. L&D has always been fair and reasonable. I recommend them.
