Do you need a machine to do alignment?
A wheel alignment is done using an alignment machine that measures your wheel angles. These are calculated and compared against your vehicle’s original specifications. The technician makes adjustments to the camber, caster, and toe of each wheel as needed.
How do I check my alignment myself?
First, find a smooth, flat, and straight stretch of road. Next, drive with a loose grip on the wheel so that you can tell if the car is pulling either way without you steering. While you are driving, listen closely to see if you can hear any scraping, whining, or grinding sounds because those could indicate a problem.
How long does a car alignment take?

Getting a wheel alignment is relatively quick and inexpensive. A skilled mechanic can do it in 30 to 60 minutes. There are some situations that take longer. For example, all-wheel drive and 4×4 vehicles are more work than two-wheel drive vehicles.
