  • A thrust angle alignment could be necessary if your steering wheel is not centered when driving straight. If a vehicle has thrust alignment issues, it can pull to one side or handle differently when turning to one side or the other.

  • The thrust angle of a car reflects the angle of its rear tires in relation to its center line. A thrust angle alignment corrects the problem by realigning the rear axle to be perpendicular with the center line and parallel with the front axle.

  • The third and most common alignment is a four wheel alignment. This alignment is used for vehicles with four-wheel independent suspensions, or front-wheel drive vehicles with adjustable rear suspensions. This procedure “squares” the vehicle like a thrust angle alignment. It allows the front and rear axles to be checked and adjusted.

What is a Thrust Angle Alignment?

If this was, by slight chance, still within specifications (thrust angle), the front wheel toe would need to be set to match the direction the rear wheels were pushing. This is referred to as thrust angle alignment. The thrust angle alignment is defined as referencing the rear wheels but not correcting the readings (must be within specifications) and then setting the front wheel toe to the direction of the rear wheels.
