1986 Chevrolet Cavalier Wheel Alignment

How Does Chevrolet Cavalier Alignment Work?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Chevrolet Cavalier’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment 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 Chevrolet intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Chevrolet specifies for your vehicle, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Chevrolet. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Chevrolet Cavalier Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Chevrolet Cavalier alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 1986 Chevrolet Cavalier: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Cavalier if your wheel alignment needs attention.
