Expert Wheel Alignment & Tire Sales
PRECISION WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES
Any vehicle from exotic car to heavy duty crane trucks, we do expert wheel alignment for all.
PROFESSIONAL & QUICK ALIGNMENT
Problematic alignment? We can fix it. We've developed specialty procedures to correct un-alignable vehicles. Plus we've also manufactured our own special tools and processes over the years.
PASSENGER CAR AND LIGHT TRUCK WHEEL ALIGNMENTS
Tru-Line Automotive performs thousands of wheel alignments per year on everyday passenger vehicles and light trucks. Tru-Line Automotive knows the particular idiosyncrasies of virtually every car on the road. Tru-Line also has the ability to service electro-magnetic steering systems that are now incorporated within many of the vehicles built after 2002. Our new Hunter computerized alignment system incorporates electric steering centering and steering angle corrections. Our alignment system is updated immediately as updated software becomes available.
COMMERCIAL ALIGNMENT SERVICES
Tru-Line is one of the oldest wheel alignment and suspension repair shops in the United States. Founded in 1966 as Tru-Line Frame and Wheel, Tru-Line Automotive services various heavy duty fleets such as the The Daily News, LA Times, Studio Services & hundreds of commercial trucking companies. These companies trust Tru-Line Automotive to repair, modify and align their vehicles.
BODY SHOP WHEEL ALIGNMENTS
In addition, Tru-Line aligns thousands of vehicles for body shops who need the expertise of a frame shop to properly align their customer’s vehicles. Tru-Line’s advantage for body shops is simple – Tru-Line Automotive can perform most minor frame corrections “post body repair” to keep the body shops expenses within budget.
Tru-Line Automotive is recommended by the Van Nuys Costco tire department because of Tru-Line Automotive’s fair prices and excellent customer service.
EXOTIC AND RARE VEHICLE ALIGNMENTS
Tru-Line Automotive in Van Nuys has been servicing exotic and rare cars for over 50 years. Tru-Line Automotive utilizes the latest Hunter Computerized Wheel Alignment system to service the most current vehicles on the road today.
MEDIUM & HEAVY DUTY TRUCK ALIGNMENT
Tru-Line Automotive in Van Nuys also has several “Old School” Bear Heavy Duty Alignment racks that allow us to re-position HD truck axles for proper camber and tire wear. Tru-Line Automotive utilizes Heavy Duty Hydraulics and custom made tooling (most of which was designed and fabricated in-house) for re-positioning procedures.
Tru-Line Automotive has multiple procedures available to locate and repair problematic vibrations. Tru-Line Automotive’s personnel are very well versed in these procedures and in the operation of Tru-Line Automotive’s equipment. Vibration diagnostic methods are not taught in the automotive schools today and are only built over years of experience and continued mentoring. Vibration diagnostics are truly a lost art in the automotive field, except here at Tru-Line Automotive in Van Nuys. We can Computer Balance your tires and then finish off with a high-speed on car wheel balance for fine tuning. Over-sized tires are no problem.
CUSTOM APPLICATION-DIRECTED WHEEL ALIGNMENT
It is not uncommon for collaboration among several of Tru-Line Automotive’s employees while providing a special application alignment. Bill enjoys being personally involved in custom applications when they arise.

Tru-Line Automotive routinely inspects and calibrates all of our alignment racks and equipment. Calibration is critical in order to obtain a good alignment. Our factory Hunter service representative, Jim Bloomfield, regularly services our Hunter alignment equipment. The staff regularly checks the rack levels and alignment implements for accuracy. As Jim has stated,
“It’s a rare thing to see properly calibrated equipment, most wheel alignments performed out there are actually out of specs because the equipment is not properly calibrated. Many of the computer alignments performed [in other shops] are by inexperienced technicians who were never properly trained in the maintenance of their equipment or in the understanding of the true geometry of alignment angles”.
