Increased Quality through Static Wheel Alignment and Automatic Toe Setting 850220

The quality of wheel alignment depends on four factors: 1. alignment equipment 2. toe setting operation 3. influence of the tire 4. hysteresis of the vehicle's suspension A static alignment machine, equipped with a computer, can handle all necessary vehicle data to determine exactly the toe adjustment values. The automatic toe-set equipment provides better results than a manual operation, as it uses much less of the given tolerance. A compensation of the hysteresis of the car is feasible by checking the suspension height.
