Improved steering response

How our Wheel Alignment Service Works

While wheel alignments are not part of your Lexus’ regularly scheduled maintenance, it’s important to keep up on. Our wheel alignment services focus on a few important parts of your wheels and suspension, in regards to their angles (caster, camber and toe), and ensuring they’re set to the manufacturer specifications. Thus, it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach, and dependent on your Lexus and its drivetrain, where our service technicians may recommend either a two-wheel or four-wheel alignment.
