What Is Wheel Alignment (AKA Tracking)?

Alignment is the angle, tilt and direction that the wheels and tyres face on the car.
They are rarely dead vertical and facing dead straight as adjusting these figures can
change the way the car behaves and handles. Negative camber can increase cornering.

Who Can Check And Adjust These Settings?

Although most people would think of taking their car to smart I seriously doubt that any
smart dealers have the equipment or the knowledge to adjust the wheel alignment.Any company that deals with tracking will do a top job and many tyre fitting places
offer reasonable services. Look for laser tracking if available as that is very accurate.

Professional companies that deal with tracking will already know the correct figures for your car.

What Settings Can Be Altered On The Smart?

Not very much.

Toe In – Toe Out
…can be adjusted on the front wheels by adjusting the steering rack arms.

Rear Camber
…can be adjusted with wedges and spacers.

If anything that can’t be adjusted is out of tolerance you may have chassis or suspension damage or worn bushes.

How Do I know That The Settings Are Off?

If the handling changes, if the steering pulls in a straight line or you have
unusual or uneven tyre wear it is worth having the settings checked.
