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:
1. Safety: Properly aligned wheels help ensure that a vehicle travels in a straight line and handles properly, reducing the risk of accidents.
2. Tire Wear: Misaligned wheels can cause uneven tire wear, reducing tire life and requiring more frequent replacements.
3. 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.
4. Ride Comfort: Properly aligned wheels can result in a smoother ride and better handling, improving overall ride comfort.
About Cadillac CT4 Blackwing
The CT4-V Blackwing is an upgraded version of the standard CT4-V, which is powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 472 horsepower (352 kW; 479 PS) and 445 lb-ft (603 Nm; 62 kg-m) of torque. The CT4-V Blackwing is a higher performance version of the standard CT4-V. It is equipped with a Tremec manual transmission that has six speeds as standard, and a 10-speed automatic transmission can be purchased as an option. Cadillac claims that its vehicles have a top speed of 189 mph (304 km/h), a 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds with the automatic gearbox and 4.2 seconds with the manual gearbox, a 1/4 mile time of 12.14 seconds when traveling at 117 mph (188 km/h), and a top speed of 304 km/h. Early in 2021, the CT4-V Blackwing was made available for pre-order, but only a select few customers were able to secure one. (Source:Wiki)
