AUTO, TRUCK & RV ALIGNMENT


RENO/SPARKS ALIGNMENT SPECIALISTS

For all cars, trucks, and RVs – domestic and foreign

Sunshine Service Brake and Alignment specializes in all forms of vehicle alignments, from very small, to very large.  We offer a complete four-wheel thrust-angle alignment, or a simple front end alignment.  We align Class-A motor-homes, fire trucks, semi-trucks, cars and light trucks of all kinds.  We also align vehicles with customized aftermarket suspensions. 

Every vehicle is given a test drive before and after.  A complete drive-ability and front-end assessment is made. If parts are needed, the customer will have the opportunity at that time to approve the needed parts and time to install them, or can opt out of the alignment with just an inspection fee. 

We can often align vehicles that other shops may have not been able to align, with the purchase of adjustable aftermarket parts, shims or other parts.   

If your car, truck, RV or trailer naturally pulls to the right or left when you’re driving along a straight road, your alignment needs checking. Even if you’re careful, it’s easy to knock your RV, car, or trailer out of alignment. Many times, all you need to do is drive over a pothole or graze over a curb. However it happened, it’s dangerous to drive with poor alignment because a poorly aligned car, truck, or RV:

  • Wears down your tires faster
  • Can cause dangerous tire blow outs
  • Lowers traction, which compromises safety
  • Can create steering problems
  • Increases uncomfortable vibrations & shakes when driving
  • Reduces fuel economy

Trailer Alignments:  One, two or three axle trailer Wheel Alignments are available.  We have all of the necessary heavy duty trailer alignment equipment to make adjustments to most trailer axles.  If you have tire wear, you need an alignment.  We also replace all manner of suspension parts, such as leaf and coil springs as needed.  We cal also can get custom springs for special situations as needed.

Motorhomes:  We align all sizes of motorhomes.  We are a Supersteer(r) product installer, and carry many aftermarket parts that can improve handling of a motorhome.  We offer a complete drivability assessment and can answer questions if you just are looking for information.

Since 1951 Sunshine Service has been known as the place to go in the Reno/Sparks area for anything to do with Brake Service, Front End work, and/or Wheel Alignment, where we have always implemented the industry’s state-of-the-art alignment technology.

Now days, cars manufacturers require that new alignment machines communicate directly to the car’s computer in order to reset the Steering Angle sensor, as a part of the alignment. This is a very important safety related update.

This is done by way of a feature on our new Hunter Engineering alignment machine, called Codelink™. As cars have become more and more intelligent, Sunshine Service has continued to keep up with those technology changes. Clink this link to watch a short video CodeLink™.
