How Does Dodge Dakota Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Dodge Dakota’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In 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. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 Dodge Dakota, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Dodge. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When to Get Dodge Dakota Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Dodge Dakota alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1998 Dodge Dakota: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when 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.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Dodge Dakota?

On a budget? Dodge Dakota wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1998 Dodge Dakota wheel alignment estimate.
