Test & Go offers you Precision Wheel Alignment on all heavy duty vehicles & trailers

 

Our State of the art equipment is approved by:

merc logo DAF logo Volvo logo Iveco logo Hyundai logo FAW logo

and many many more

Don't be fooled by companies offering you a Mobile (backyard) Alignment - it's not worth the costly comebacks!

We also offer Wheel Balancing - Tyres on the steer axle/s are balanced during every alignment for a superior result.

The main reason why mobile alignment is flawed is because there is NO WAY for the mobile alignment guy to accurately check vital bushes & joints for play like radius bushes, rocker bushes, air ride bushes, u-bolts, diff stabiliser bushes, pivot bolts, kingpins, tie-rods, etc.

- We have 5 sets of state of the art axle play detectors which make finding play on the above-mentioned parts a breeze.  We also do the repair the same time prior to alignment.  The result...... a properly aligned vehicle.

Pro's of an Advanced Alignment

Con's of a Mobile (Backyard) Alignment

 
right
Our Equipment is state of the art and the latest in commercial Wheel Alignment Technology
wrong
Measurements are taken on uneven surfaces like gravel, tar roads, grass or poorly constructed workshop floors
         
right
Measurements are taken in a controlled environment inside our modern state of the art workshop (no outside alignment)
wrong
When measuring outside, external factors influence readings like wind (blows reflective targets from side to side affecting accurate measurements) and uv rays from the sun bounce off targets affecting readings
         
right
Our workshop floor was designed by a qualified engineer and is perfectly level within a few millimeters tolerance giving accurate alignment readings resulting in a proper alignment
wrong
Wheel bearings, bushes and steering linkage can't be accurately checked for play
         
right
Bushes and kingpins are checked by state of the art axle play detectors for any play / loose bearings prior to alignment
wrong
No Before and After print-outs showing work was done correctly
         
right
Tyres on the steer axle/s are balanced during every alignment for a superior result
wrong
No wheel balance performed during a mobile alignment
         
right
Big Savings in tyres, diesel and less wear on steering and suspension components
wrong
Costly comebacks!
         
right
We have a 800 square meter alignment workshop with 5 bays for interlink trucks with Inspection Pits
wrong
No inspection pits, alignment technician has to work on the ground and often in the dirt
         
right
Before and After print out to prove that the work was done
wrong
Mobile alignment industry is a dying industry as companies are realising the need for proper alignment

 

We precision align the following vehicles:

  • All Trucks & Semi-trailers
  • Bakkies (Hilux, Supercab, etc.)
  • Mercedes Benz Sprinter
  • VW Crafter

Most common alignment errors........

 

alignment errors

toe-in toe-out

 

 

 

 

 

 

Misaligned axles causes Tandem Scrub, resulting in the tandem axles working against each other, creating rolling resistance which burns more fuel and causes premature component failure and tyre damage

One of the most crucial alignment angles to adjust during an alignment is TURNING ANLGE:
  • When turning angle differs more than 2° side to side, shoulder scuffing starts setting in on the front steer tyres.  During mobile alignment this crucial factor is always over looked and turning angle is never adjusted.
  • When bolts are loosened during an alignment, our technicians always torque the loosened bolt/s with a torque wrench to manufacturers specifications.  When last did you see your mobile guy carrying a torque wrench?
 

Also one of the most common problems we encounter before alignment is under inflated tyres - the crux of the matter these are vehicles where the customer has big tyre corporations on site.

What do our customer say?

 

"Wheel alignment was the best!  After three months I am still happy" - Steve Botes (Distanza Transport)
