How do I know if I need a alignment, when I hit my brakes my car pulls very bad to the left?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Chris, You can observe your wear pattern on your tires that will tell you a lot of history on the behaviors of your vehicle. You should have your alignment checked approx. every 30k miles. The pulling may be caused by a faulty tie rod. AJ Pierce

Bogi Lateiner, Owner and Technician at 180 Degrees Automotive Hi Chris There are a few things that could cause your car to pull when braking. I would first check your tire pressures to make sure they are okay. While you are looking at the tires see if they are worn unevenly at all - that can be a sign that you need an alignment. However, it could be a sticky caliper or a worn suspension component such as control arm bushings. Before throwing money at the problem, I recommend you have a ASE certified technician take a look at it and see what she/he thinks. Good luck! Bogi Lateiner http://www.180auto.com/
