Vehicle Pre-Alignment Checks

Wheel Alignment Pre-Check | Vehicle Pre-Alignment Checks

For those performing a wheel alignment check on a vehicle, no matter which wheel alignment system you are using to obtain alignment measurements, it’s important to do some simple pre-checks to ensure the vehicle is in the optimal condition for accurate readings.


To help, we have produced a handy Pre-Alignment check guideline which can be followed to ensure the vehicle is optimal for the alignment measurements to be carried out.









Check the suspension and joints are in a good condition




 Centralise the steering rack (if it has been replaced)




 Check tyre pressures are correct




 Check there are no space saver tyres fitted




 Remove wheel trims if they are fitted




 Check for damaged or buckled wheels





Once you are happy with your prechecks you carry out your wheel alignment measurements.
