Re: front end newb ?
I've never heard of a centering kit. If the tires are wearing evenly, do a balance and tire rotation and then get an alignment done. Also, be sure to check out a few shops for quotes and see what they have to say about this so called 'centering kit'. It sounds like a money grab to me. I've owned tons of vehicles and had them all aligned at least twice, and never been told I need that.
