Wheel misalignments can cause significant problems for your car. Even a slight misalignment can cause damaging wear and tear, but unfortunately, they are very common. If you take your car in for collision repair, the auto body shop will likely check your alignment as part of the process.

In addition to accidents, wheel misalignments can happen for many other reasons. Hitting a pothole while driving is enough to cause an alignment problem, as it bumping or going over a curb. If you pull into a parking spot too far and hit the barrier, your wheels could become misaligned. Over time, wear and tear on your car will also leak to alignment, as ball and socket joints become loose and rubber starts cracking.
