Question alignment

i am going to be getting new tires and an alignment this friday and was wondering whether we need a 2 or 4 wheel alignment. i don't want to walk in there and have them tell me about shit i don't need. is there anything that we should look at while under the car?? it's an '01 ES with 110K on it. anyone that can offer advice, i would greatly appreciate!!! TIA

4 wheel alignments are not much more than a 2 wheel, so its worth your while to get a 4 wheel. Typically, there's not much that can be adjusted in the rear for an alignment, but they still need to get the front and back of the car to go straight. Even when things might be out in the rear, sometimes they can compensate in the front to correct that, but without doing a 4 wheel, you won't know. I'm kinda suprised any place still does a 2 wheel anymore.

And getting an alignement while getting new tires is the best time. You're starting with new tires that don't have any strange wear patterns so you would be able to tell pretty quickly if there's alignment issues. With already used tires, even after getting an alignment, old tires are already worn in and still exibit some to the same things as before getting an alignment, like pulling and drifting, so getting new tires at the same time eliminates that problem. Starting with fresh new tires that roll true and a new alignment to make sure they will stay that way.

ya, def do 4 wheel since ur getting new tires. It's worth the money to prevent any bad wear patterns on those new tires.
