My car pulls significantly to the left. I think it needs an alignment job. I have a coupon for 39.95 alignment special castor, camber and two applicable free chassis safety inspection. Is there anything I need to know before I take my car in?
Hello Kylah- 1st thing to do is check your tire pressure to make sure the front tire pressure is equal- if the tire pressure is correct than you probably need an alignment- try to find a reputable shop as many of the alignment shops will try to sell you items that are unnecessary - thanks Super Girls Auto.

The coupon sounds good, especially with the economic crunch! ASK questions, tell them it*s pulling, tell them you want to see the problem IF their is one. They will also inspect the tires, there is a possibility it could be a bad tire or they may just rotate them for you. Has your car kissed a curb lately? Small things like this could become BIG things! You are giving them permission to look for things when you have them put the car on a rack...Since you do NOT know this company, be prepared to hear of other things that are going or things to look for in the future. Reputable facilities will give you updates on possible Safety issues needing repaired before they ask you to fix something that needs to be watched...
Take the Alignment & IF you have a trusted mechanic take the list to him to review and repair! My question to you?: If you have a Facility you like..why not let them do the alignment, may cost a bit more but they may match the price & is truly worth~"Peace of Mind"! It could you in the long run...OUCH!
