Wheel Alignment Parameters
1. Camber: Camber is the angle of the wheels when viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle. A wheel that is tilted inward has negative camber, while a wheel that is tilted outward has positive camber. Camber can affect tire wear, handling, and steering.
2. Caster: Caster is the angle of the steering axis when viewed from the side of the vehicle. A positive caster angle means that the steering axis tilts towards the rear of the vehicle, while a negative caster angle tilts towards the front. Caster can affect steering stability and the returnability of the steering wheel to center.
3. Toe: Toe refers to the angle at which the front or rear wheels are tilted inward or outward when viewed from above. If the wheels are tilted inward, this is called “toe in,” while if the wheels are tilted outward, this is called “toe out.” Toe can affect tire wear, handling, and steering.
4. Thrust Angle: The thrust angle is the angle between the vehicle’s centerline and the rear axle’s geometric centerline. It is measured by comparing the direction that the rear wheels are pointing to the centerline of the vehicle. The thrust angle can affect vehicle stability and how straight the vehicle drives. A thrust angle that is not perpendicular to the centerline of the vehicle can cause the vehicle to pull to one side.

It’s always best to consult a professional mechanic or alignment specialist for the most accurate recommendations for your vehicle.
Wheel Alignment Brief Information
Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Proper wheel alignment is important for several reasons, including:
- Safety: Properly aligned wheels help ensure that a vehicle travels in a straight line and handles properly, reducing the risk of accidents.
- Tire Wear: Misaligned wheels can cause uneven tire wear, reducing tire life and requiring more frequent replacements.
- Fuel Efficiency: When wheels are misaligned, the vehicle may have to work harder to maintain speed, which can result in decreased fuel efficiency and increased costs.
- Ride Comfort: Properly aligned wheels can result in a smoother ride and better handling, improving overall ride comfort.
About Acura ILX
The concept version debuted at the 2012 North American International Auto Show, while the production model debuted at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. Acura calls its new design “aero-fused dynamics” for the ILX. Honda’s assembly plant in Greensburg, Indiana, began mass production on April 23, and U.S. sales began on May 22.
The ILX’s body in white uses 59% high strength steel ranging from 440-980 MPa yield strength grades, aluminum is used for the hood and front bumper beam. In comparison to the Civic, the ILX has “Amplitude Reactive” dampers and a larger, more rigid steering shaft for improved handling and ride quality.
Option packages include leather upholstery, 17″ alloy wheels, navigation system, premium audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio, and high intensity discharge headlamps, as well as a multi-view rear backup camera with regular, wide-angle, and top-down modes. The ILX came standard with 17-inch wheels, leather interior, heated front seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a tri-angle backup camera, and an audio subwoofer with Active Noise Cancellation for the 2014 model year.
