Aligning emergency vehicles
is not like aligning a passenger car. Fire trucks have complicated steering and suspension systems. Some are articulated, with steering wheels in the back as well as front. All have heavy-duty suspension components requiring completely different alignment apparatus and expertise. Champion Frame-Align Inc. has both the equipment and the experience to work on these systems.
Many ambulances and Emergency Medical Response (EMT) trucks have tag axles or at least four tires on the rear axle. They are built on oversize chassis requiring a facility capable of holding them rigidly in place while aligning.Tire balance is a critical component of vehicle alignment
. As one of the few service facilities in North America that can balance a tire and wheel while it is installed on an emergency vehicle, Champion Frame-Align Inc. has removed many variables from the alignment process.
