If you are looking for a good place to get a Ford Raptor alignment, look no further. We have done many Raptors in the past and don’t turn clients away. If it can fit on our rack, it will be aligned. During the process we always stay in communication with the client to assure the best result. If you daily drive it, just use it to haul stuff or actually take it off-road and jump it, a good alignment is crucial.
Ford Raptor Alignment
Even if you don’t take your truck off-road, the alignment should be checked. You might have noticed uneven tire wear or the vehicle pulling left or right. If that is the case an alignment should be done. If you did not notice anything specific, an alignment should be checked every 12,000 miles or once a year. However, if you get a suspension installed or new tires we recommend to check the alignment to avoid uneven tire wear. We use a high quality alignment machine by Hofmann Equipment to provide you with the best quality alignment available. We have not had a Raptor here that we could not align. Sometimes, if you get heavy off-road use out of your truck, parts might be bent or broken that can affect the alignment. However, we will let you know during the diagnostics process what we find.
When your alignment is off it can effect your tire wear to an extend that can only be fixed by buying new tires. During the alignment we look at the following things:
• Toe – Positive Toe would mean that when looking at the tires from the front of your truck, they would look turned in towards each other. Negative Toe means the opposite. The tires would look like they are steering out, away from each other.
• Camber – Negative Camber means, when looking at the truck from the front, the top of the tire will look tilted inward. With Positive Camber the top of the tire would look tilted outward.
We also adjust Caster if it calls for it, usually slightly positive. Positive Caster gives the vehicle straight ahead stability and helps the steering wheel return to the center. With positive Caster, when the back of your tire is being turned in, it is being forced down. Meanwhile the other tire is allowed to come up. That is why ,when turning your steering wheel at a stand still, makes the front of your truck rise up on one side and dip down on the other. You are seeing the Caster angle at work.
Below we show you a few Raptors that came in recently to fix their alignment.
