At West Mesa Auto Craft, we use the best frame alignment device on the market – the Chief frame measuring system. This is a machine that carefully measures a vehicle, comparing its measurements and angles to the factory specifications for that car. If there are any discrepancies between those numbers, we will make adjustments until it is back in perfect alignment.
If you suspect that your car has sustained frame damage, give us a call. We can assess the state of the vehicle’s frame and begin with repairs. We are also able to test for and identify potential frame damage in a vehicle you’ve purchased or are planning to purchase so you can make an informed decision!
Frame damage can occur in any accident, although most cars frames are sturdy enough to withstand most collisions. Major impacts, roll-over accidents or any occasion where the car’s undercarriage gets bent are common causes of frame damage.
In any case, if your frame has been damaged, it’s important to have it repaired by a body shop that is experienced with frame alignment.
At West Mesa Auto Craft, frame repair and alignment is one of our specialties.
Your car’s frame is like its skeleton, supporting the car’s body and giving it structure. If the frame is out of alignment even a small amount, it will affect every part of the car.
Body panels won’t fit quite right, the suspension will feel “off” and the car will lose some of its structural integrity.
Fixing a vehicle cosmetically will help how it looks, but not how it performs. To properly restore a vehicle to its pre-accident condition, a body shop needs to complete a professional frame alignment.
