An alignment involves making adjustments to your Acura SLX's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Acura intended. When your suspension is aligned to Acura’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Acura SLX, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Acura. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It's a good idea to have your Acura SLX alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1996 Acura SLX: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your SLX dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Let’s talk numbers: Acura SLX wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1996 Acura SLX wheel alignment estimate.
