How Does Buick Skyhawk Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Buick Skyhawk’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 Buick intended. When your suspension is aligned to Buick’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 Buick Skyhawk, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Buick. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Buick Skyhawk Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Buick Skyhawk alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce 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 1986 Buick Skyhawk: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Skyhawk dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
