General Information and Recommendations
1. Four-Wheel Thrust Alignment should always be performed.
^ This type of alignment is recommended for all Infiniti vehicles.
^ The four-wheel thrust process ensures that the vehicle is properly aligned and helps ensure proper "centering" of the steering wheel.
2. Use the right alignment machine.
^ You must use a quality alignment machine that will give accurate results when performing alignment checks.
^ Refer to the Infiniti TECH-MATE Service Equipment Catalog for recommended alignment equipment.
^ The alignment rack itself should be capable of accepting any Infiniti vehicle.
^ The rack should be checked to ensure that it is level.
3. Make sure the alignment machine is properly calibrated.
^ Your alignment equipment should be regularly calibrated in order to give accurate readings.
^ If any instrument that is part of the alignment machine is dropped or damaged calibration should be checked immediately.
^ Check with the manufacturer of your specific equipment for their recommended service/calibration schedule.
