Wheel Alignment Services in Wilmington, NC
With over 25 years of experience working in the vehicle alignment and brake business, Mark Derham of Derham's Alignment and Brake Center in Wilmington, NC knows the importance of proper wheel alignment to the performance and safety of your vehicle. Derham's Alignment has the experience, the state-of-the-art equipment and unsurpassed customer service to ensure your vehicle is properly aligned. Tires are one of the most expensive elements of vehicle maintenance, so getting your vehicle’s alignment checked and corrected now can save you money in the future.
Proper Vehicle Wheel Alignment
Proper vehicle alignment is important to not only necessary control over your vehicle while driving, but it can actually save you money as well. If your vehicle is pulling to one side, or your tires squeal when turning, you have an alignment problem. Your vehicle can be out of alignment even if you are not experiencing these symptoms. Even subtle misalignment can also cause undue wear and tear on your tires, forcing you to replace them earlier than necessary.
Our Wheel Alignment Services Include:
- inspection of suspension and steering systems as well as tire condition and air pressure
- inspection of shocks and struts for damage and wear.
- get your vehicle on the alignment rack, then mount and compensate sensors for alignment readings
- adjust to manufacturer specifications toe angles, caster and camber
- final alignment readings to verify correct alignment and print out results for you
- road test vehicle
When to Check Your Steering Systems
For optimal performance, which includes proper tire wear and tear and fuel efficiency, it is recommended to have vehicle alignment, suspension and steering inspections every 12,000 miles. Not only does it make your vehicle safer for you to drive, but it can save money in fuel costs and premature tire replacement.
Steering and Suspension Services
Derham’s Alignment and Brake Center offers complete steering and suspension system inspections and repair services. Worn suspension and/or steering systems can lead to premature wear on your tires as well as noise and vibration felt within the vehicle. It can also disturb your steering control which negatively impacts handling and performance.
We begin with an inspection of your steering and suspension systems to spot any issues. We then offer a detailed report of what is needed along with a free estimate. We have the necessary equipment to correct or repair any alignment issue your vehicle may face.
Automobile Drivetrain Services
Your drivetrain serves multiple functions for your vehicle. It varies the amount of torque sent to your wheels and evenly transfers power to all drive wheels from the engine. A vehicle drivetrain encompasses not only the transmission, but the transfer case and the differential. If there is damage to any of these elements, you can find yourself on the side of the road. Also, your drivetrain needs preventative maintenance service to keep it working properly as well as to prolong the life of your transmission, transfer case, axles and differential.
At Derham's Alignment, we service and/or repair the following drivetrain elements.
- Drive Shaft
- Differentials (Front & Rear)
- Wheel Bearings
- Axle Bearings
