WHAT COULD THROW A CAR OFF ALIGNMENT
Wheel alignment can be thrown off by:
1. Bumping into concrete parking stall......see image
2. Hitting the curb......see image
3. Going in to a pot hole......see image
4. Wear and tear as vehicles age, rubber components (bushings, control arms, ball joints) start cracking or lose their elasticity. They start to give a little more, preogressivley getting slightly worse over time.
A slight misalignment can cause a lot of uneven or premature tire wear......see image
