Hunter HawkEye Elite™ Alignment System
ZTF Automotive technicians utilize a state-of-the-art HawkEye Elite™ Alignment System, which features four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted to each wheel using Hunter’s patented QuickGrip™ adapters. QuickGrip™ adapters feature spring-loaded arms that grip the tire, eliminating metal-to-metal contact and any chance of rim damage.
The HawkEye Elite™ Alignment System provides ZTF Automotive's factory-trained technicians with precise measurements for camber, caster, toe, and thrust angle. Once the baseline data is recorded, adjustments are made to your vehicle's suspension components to correctly bring the alignment back within factory specifications.
Benefits of Professional Alignments
Wheel alignments are one of the most critical maintenance items for modern vehicles, yet are often overlooked or performed incorrectly. ZTF Automotive employs factory-trained technicians and uses the highest-quality alignment systems to ensure that your Audi or Volkswagen's alignment is dialed in, which results in reduced tire wear, better fuel economy, improved handling, and a safer driving experience.
- Improved Handling - Even if your car isn't pulling to one side or in need of constant steering inputs to keep it travelling in a straight line, the handling benefits of a proper alignment can be drastic.
- Decreased Tire Wear - Most tires are replaced sooner than necessary due to excessive or uneven tire wear from improper wheel alignment. A professional wheel alignment by ZTF Automotive can remedy incorrect camber and toe settings, prolonging the life of your tires and saving you money in the long run.
- Better Fuel Economy - Improper alignment can result in increased rolling resistance, which can significantly decrease fuel efficiency. A proper alignment will correct this issue, positively impacting gas mileage.
- Alignment Correction on Lowered Vehicles - Lowered vehicles require a custom alignment - often involving additional parts - in order to bring the wheel alignment back into specification. ZTF Automotive technicians are trained to align vehicles with lowering springs and coilovers to optimize handling and performance.
Alignments for Aftermarket Suspension Upgrades
Lowered? You'll definitely need an alignment after installing lowering springs or coilovers, and chances are good that you may need adjustable control arms in order to bring the alignment back within the manufacturer's specified range.
At ZTF Automotive, we not only have experience with adjustable control arms and spherical suspension components, but also manufacture dozens of them in-house! If your car cannot be aligned properly using the factory adjustments after lowering, we can supply the components needed to provide additional adjustments.
Is your car too low for an alignment at most other shops? No need to worry! ZTF Automotive's HawkEye Elite™ Alignment Rack is flush-mounted to allow even the lowest of cars to drive onto it with ease.
Custom & Precision Aligments
Looking for a custom alignment for the street or track? We can help! While the factory-specified ranges for alignment are ideal for street driving, ZTF Automotive can help optimize your vehicle's alignment for your driving preferences or the track.
Custom alignments that fall outside of the factory-specified ranges are available, as well as precision alignments which offer a higher level of accuracy than required by the manufacturer. These services are available at a minimal surcharge on top of the base price for alignments.
Ride Height Reset/Adjustments
Need your ride height changed or reset for alignment? If your vehicle is equipped with height adjustable springs or coilovers, ZTF Automotive's skilled technicians can perform this service at the same time as your alignment for an additional fee.
