They are really separate issues, but in my opinion I would do it just as you did, the balancing after the alignment. The alignment adjusts the wheel assembly to assure the tires wear evenly from side to side, and eliminates wheel scrub (toe in or toe out) along the inside or outside of your tires. The wheel balancing makes the tire rotate evenly to eliminate flat spots as it rotates so your tire wears evenly all around.
Under-inflated tyres. Pump up your tyres. Another thing is it could be is out of alignment. So, it might need a wheel alignment. While getting a wheel alignment, have the mechanic check the suspension bushes and control arm bushes.
Wheel alignment and tire balance are the first place to look. if you feel vibrations in the seat. the rear wheels are the fist place to check. if vibrations are present through the steering wheel, then front tire alignment and tire balance are probably the cause. or something suspension or steering related. Even uneven wear on tires can cause this. but uneven wear is the sign of another problem, tracing back to suspension or steering problems.
Details just in english; front wheel drive and some high-end rear wheel drive cars generally employ an Independent Rear Suspension, or IRS. In this case each wheel connects to the car by a group of lightweight control arms. This design saves weight, improves vehicle handling and does wonders for ride comfort.
Inspecting wheel alignment begins with a check for loose or faulty suspension components and requires the use of a costly machine to measure all the critical angles. The inspection and measurement phase takes perhaps a half-hour for each end of the car. Needed corrections can be fairly simple, or they can add to labor considerably should installation of retrofit parts be needed.
Looks like u have to go to the suspension service center!
Let them check ur suspension bushings and tie rod ends!~
After repairing the front suspension a wheel alignment is required!
Hope that helps u out!
The first thing I would check for is a bent wheel. If the wheel is straight than the next thing to check would be a separated tire.
The tread on the tire should be smooth and even all the way around. If it is bulging out in a spot than the tire is separated.
Since the steering wheel is not straight I would suspect there is more to the story. Did you hit a curb or a pothole? If so you may have also bent some suspension components (worst case) or best case knocked the alignment out.
have a suspension specialist shop check the rear suspension bushes for failure
have the wheel alignment for the rear done as well
other items to check are wheel bearings , shock absorbers and body alignment ( possible accident damage )
The most common cause is low air pressure in the right front tire. The next most common is a bad tie rod end on either the right or the left. A very bad ball joint can also cause this problem. If you can't find anything obvious the van needs the front end aligned. Many tire shops can do it and all tire shops will know someone that can do it. Part of the front end alignment is to check the condition of any and all parts that could make the vehicle pull. Check the tire first though. Good Luck!
The steering and suspension systems of the car are fairly robust and generally not too much goes wrong with them. With the advent of rack and pinion steering and the use of MacPherson strut suspension tech, a lot of moving parts have been eliminated. Things still can go wrong and cause a vehicle to become hard to control. When something is wrong the very least that will happen is your tires will wear out very quickly and at most, lead to an accident.
In your case... You'll notice it takes much more strength to turn the steering wheel. This is especially noticed when you are trying to park. The problem seems to be getting worse.
1.Low tire pressure: Check and adjust tire pressures.
2.The steering gear needs to be lubricated: Lubricate steering gear parts as required.
3.The wheels are out of alignment: Have the wheels aligned.
4.A part of the steering linkage is damaged and doesn't not move freely: Replace steering gear parts as required.
5.Your steering box needs to be adjusted: Adjust steering box as required.
6.You have a problem with the power steering pump: Repair or replace power steering pump as required.
