The Importance of Wheel Alignment
Aligning your automobile’s wheels will ensure your tires meet the road at the proper angle, your wheels are straight, and your tires are centered. If your wheels are out of alignment, you may be putting unnecessary stress on your tires, reducing your gas mileage, and even leaving yourself vulnerable to accidents. But an eye test will not always reveal whether your wheels are aligned. Michael J’s Body Shop uses advanced technology to take precise measurements of your wheels’ angles. Visit us for an inspection if you notice:
- Uneven tire wear
- The feeling of your vehicle pulling in one direction
- Loose handling
- Steering wheel vibrations
- Your vehicle moving straight despite your steering wheel not being centered
We Provide Comprehensive Suspension and Alignment Repairs
When you drive the streets of San Jose, CA, you should experience a smooth, even ride. If you notice any shaking, bouncing, or loose handling, you may have suspension or wheel alignment issues. We can address any such problems to help you feel safe on the road.
Suspension problems are likely if your vehicle bounces or sways excessively when you drive over bumps or press your brakes. Your suspension system comprises several components that, when working correctly, help ensure a smooth ride regardless of any dips or curves in the road. But over time, they can begin to wear. As a result, your car will have less stability and you will not be as comfortable driving or riding in it. Furthermore, suspension problems can begin to affect other areas of your vehicle. Therefore, it is essential to visit Michael J’s Body Shop for repairs right away. The suspension repair services we offer include:
- Ball Joint Replacement
- Inner and Outer Tire Rod Replacement
- Shocks Replacement
- Struts Replacement
- Suspension Inspection
- Sway Bar Link Replacement

How Often Should You Check Your Vehicle’s Alignment?
Though we recommend a quick check of your alignment whenever you receive automotive services or car body repairs, we know some vehicle owners do not visit mechanics on a regular basis. For these drivers, we suggest aligning your wheels every 10,000 miles or at least once per year. Be sure to also check your car’s owner’s manual for further instructions.
