No. Bearings and axles are non-adjustable. But the question is not clear as to what is meant by "off". There is really nothing other than mileage that wears bearings and axles. Front-wheel drive cars don't have servicable bearings. However, when a rear brake job is done on a car with drum brakes, chances are there may be bearings that should be greased at that time. Axles are sealed, and are not serviceable on anything other than a 4x4, and even then, there isn't much to service. Bearings on a Ford Explorer 4x4 (for example) needs the front bearings re-packed with a front brake job. If your axle or bearings seem messed up after the alignment and rotation, it didn't have anything to do the tires being out of balance. Because lifting a vehicle on a rack removes all weight off the suspension, it can sometimes cause the vehicle to settle wrong when put back down if there is a weakness in a component. Example, wheel bearings that got into their own worn groove because they were a little loose. The wheel, when off the ground, tilted one way, and when lowered back down, forced the bearing if loose into a weird spot.
Rotate and balance, then alignment.
a rotation is where they switch your tires from front to back a tire balance is where they make sure the tire is the same weight all the way around alignment is where they make sure your steering is straight
1. out of balance tire 2. Steering out of alignment 3. bad wheel bearings
Tires do not get out of alignment they may be out of balance but not alignment. Your suspension however can be out of alignment. The only way to know for sure is to have it checked.
In my area a tire rotation and balance runs around $40In my area a tire rotation and balance runs around $40
Pros – Good company policies, rotation opportunities, work-life balanceCons – Sales focus and restructuring and re-alignment every year
Tires worn out? Tires mounted and tight ok? Good alignment? Good balance? you'll need to take it back and ask these things or get a second opinion.. d
Before-a bad alignment cannot "unbalance" a wheel, but an unbalanced wheel, if bad enough, can throw off an alignment.
the reason they probably did this is because they wanted to be sure that the tires would not start wearing unevenly, it's always a good thing to keep your alignment in check. Tires Plus employee
Wheel alignment 40-60 $ depending on where you go. Wheel balancing 20 $
I had the same problem. Going over 75 mph would almost feel like the car was going to blow up. The steering wheel would shake uncontrollably. I got an alignment, new tires and a balance and now the cars runs perfectly. So it may be one or all of the following... --balance/rotation --tires --alignment hope this helps.
Alignment, balance, finish
Your wheels could be out of alignment; however, it is probably your wheels are out of balance. I would have this checked and repaired, if it is not fixed this will cause your tires too wear faster. Worn Parts like a radius arm bushing , wheel bearings , or even upper or lower ball joints can cause a shaking in your front end.
wheel balance is when the wheel is removed from the vehicle and balnced on a wheel balancing machine. an alignment is done with the vehichle as a whole and ur camber and tow is adjusted and aligned
wheel balancing is to balance four wheels. wheel alignment is to straight four wheels.
you do not have to align your vehicle to balance the tires BUT a balanced tire will still wear if the alignment is not correct
could be a tire out of balance or vehicle out of alignment
yes to balance well
A alignment is needed if its pulling to one side. Where as a balance is needed if the car is viberating.
most often, either the tires are worn unevenly, need to be balanced, or you need a front end alignment, which involves balance as well. Have a truste dmechanic check. Worst case is wheel bearings need work
Wheel balance or drive shaft balance. Could be bearings also.
wheel may have gone out of balance, alignment possibly knocked out of whack, or front wheel bearings loose.
There are a few possible causes, but probably the most common is wheel alignment and/or balance.
