The Automotive Mechanics program at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center (CCCTC) has recently equipped it’s shop with a powerful wheel alignment machine by Hunter Engineering.  Students in the program explained some easy to notice symptoms of a misaligned vehicle such as: excessive or uneven tire wear, vehicle drift or pull, feeling of looseness or wandering, and an out of level steering wheel. They also mentioned that it is important to have your vehicle aligned every 10,000 miles, or at least once a year.
