ALIGNMENT SERVICE AND REPAIR
At BERARDS AUTOMOTIVE on Girod street in Old Mandeville, La. all wheel alignments are performed by ASE-Master Certified Technician Tye Berard or one of his ASE-certified technicians. Tye has been working on automobiles since 1984; opening BERARD’S AUTOMOTIVE on Girod st. in Mandeville, La. in 1998. He started his career as an alignment specialist, performing thousands of alignments through the years. We can check to see if you need an alignment before its performed, often the alignment is O.K. Surprisingly a tire low on air pressure or out of balance can be the problem.
Some of the things that can cause your alignment of going out of specification are:
- Hitting pot holes
- Bumping into a curb
- Regular bangs and bumps of rough roads
- Worn steering parts
- Slack in your suspension
All of these can add up and eventually cause your vehicle to be out of alignment.
We measure each wheel’s angle and alignment, that measurement is taken and compared to factory specification. Adjustments are made to bring your alignment to its original setting. While the vehicle is on the alignment rack, we diagnose steering and suspension components for damage or wear as well as the tires.
