Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1998 Audi A6

How Does Audi A6 Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Audi A6’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Audi intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Audi specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Audi A6, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Audi’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Audi A6 Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Audi A6 alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1998 Audi A6: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your A6 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
