1986 Chevrolet Caprice Wheel Alignment

How Does Chevrolet Caprice Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Chevrolet Caprice's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. 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 Chevrolet intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Chevrolet’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 lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. When you bring in your 1986 Chevrolet Caprice, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Chevrolet recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Chevrolet Caprice

It’s wise to have your Chevrolet Caprice alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1986 Chevrolet Caprice: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Caprice dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
