Q: Alignment off on 2004 GMC Envoy

asked by on

The alignment went out on my car.

Hello. Sometimes hitting a curb or running over a pothole can cause the alignment to go out in a car. Also, if you have a worn suspension it will cause the alignment to go out as well. If this is the case, a shop with a wheel alignment machine will fix the problem. There are several suspension parts that could be worn and would need to be inspected. These parts include: inner and outer tire rods, upper and lower control arms, ball joints, and struts. To rule out that there’s a problem with the suspension, I would suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your suspension.
