At Dowdy’s Auto, we understand the crucial role that precise wheel alignment plays in your vehicle’s performance and your overall driving experience. That’s why we offer comprehensive wheel alignment services, ensuring your ride is smooth, your tires last longer, and you drive with confidence.

Standard Wheel Alignment

Ideal for most vehicles, this service involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car manufacturer’s specifications, ensuring optimal tire wear and vehicle handling.

Thrust Alignment

This service aligns the rear wheels with the car’s centerline, a crucial adjustment for vehicles without adjustable rear suspension. It ensures that the front wheels are perfectly centered and the vehicle drives straight.

Four-Wheel Alignment

Recommended for all-wheel-drive models or vehicles with independent rear suspensions, this comprehensive alignment adjusts both the front and rear suspension.
