Why Is Dodge Dakota Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Dodge Dakota's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 Dodge intended. When the system is aligned to Dodge specifications, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1997 Dodge Dakota in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Dodge’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Dodge Dakota Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Dodge Dakota alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 Dodge Dakota: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Dakota dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
