American & Foreign Garage is also the home of Precision Alignment.
Specializing in suspension work and alignment, we take pride in delivering the very best alignments in Utah.
At our shop in Midvale, we specialize in suspension, steering, and performance setups for high performance, racing, hot-rod, classic, and custom applications. Our experienced team understands how much time, money and effort goes into these cars. We treat them as if they were one of our own. If you have a special vehicle that needs setup, repair, or even just a check-up, you can rest assured that our team here will treat it right.
We employ that same standard of service, and attention to detail, for all cars we work on- be it a race car for the track, or the family minivan. To maximize tire life, increase fuel economy, and ensure proper handling, proper alignment is essential.
We all know how rough Utah roads can be. For most cars, we recommend (and many tire warranties require) an annual alignment.
We utilize the latest equipment, including a Hunter Hawkeye Elite laser alignment system for maximum accuracy. This system is self-compensating, and uses four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted to each wheel using Hunter’s patented QuickGrip™ adaptors.
We all know tires are expensive. Coupled with regular alignments, proper inflation and frequent tire rotation can ensure you get the maximum life out of your investment.
As tires wear, you may also notice increasing vibrations at certain speeds. This is often due to the wheel/tire assembly coming out of balance. This can be due to wear, or in some cases adhesive or pound on balance weights can be lost. Re-balancing the tires can often reduce these vibrations. For the smoothest ride possible, we employ a Hunter GSP 9700 diagnostic balancer. This machine allows measurement and compensation for variation in wheel and tire radial tolerances. This allows us to re-clock the tire onto the wheel for the optimal total geometric solution.
