Tru-Line Laser Wheel Alignment… Past and Present

Claude Cooke, Laser Engineer was contracted by Rotary lift in the very early 1980s to create a 4 wheel laser alignment machine that Rotary Lift would offer to its clients. Well, the project was completed and presented to Rotary. They had a change in management and told Claude “Thank you for your great work, but we are not going to be adding wheel alignment to our line at this point.” Claude named the product Tru-Line, TL-12 Passenger Car and Light Truck Laser Wheel Alignment System and with the help of a our representative, Ed Richardson we went out and won the contract to outfit Walmart in the US with wheel alignment systems. Hundreds of systems were installed and were in operation for over 10 years. Some are still installed and used today.

Fast forward 17 years, Lesley Cooke and Jim Zoehrer with a passion for cars, racing and tools, purchased the company in 1998 from Claude. Keeping to the same fundamental belief: Build a product that works well and will do the job for the client for years!

With over 10k installed world-wide in every market from manufacturing to racing there are very few vehicles our product cannot align.

Lesley and Jim expanded the product line to include the TR-12 Race Wheel Alignment System, TLT-12 Heavy Truck and Trailer, TLT-12 Bus Truck, Bus and RV, TT-14 Trailer Tracking and the TL-90 Dually One ton kit.

We are very proud to be a 100% USA Made product and will roll the doors down if that changes!!!

Give our fearless leader Lesley Cooke a call or drop an email if we can offer more information or customize a machine to fit your needs!

Car and Driver – Track Day Accessories
Track Home: These items bring the comfort of your crib—and garage—to the circuit From the October Issue of Car and Driver: Car and Driver Gearbox October 2011 A good track day will take you out of your comfort zone, but that can also mean going without certain conveniences. Spend a little money, and the products featured here can ease track days’ discomforts—if not, alas, their humiliations. Tru-Line TL-12 Portable Laser-Alignment System Lasers! The Tru-Line alignment system makes possible those last-minute chassis adjustments. It’s portable and works on uneven surfaces, allowing you to measure and then mess with toe, camber, caster, and steering-axis inclination. The measurements are easy to read, but make sure you have a shop manual on hand in order to properly affect adjustments. Problem: It’s harder to blame the car when you can adjust it on-site. Did we mention the lasers? ($5995) Race & Stock Car Laser Wheel Alignment


It was a pleasure talking to you Friday on the phone I have been using your product for years. It has never cost me one dime to maintain and has done many thousands of wheel alignments on all kinds of cars and light duty trucks.

I have had some other equipment salesmen call on me with their newest greatest equipment costing tens of thousands of dollars. I send them away, they just take too long to set up and the results are not any better than your equipment. I pride myself on a straight steering wheel and can always accomplish it with Tru-Line.
