Why Is Dodge Dakota Alignment Important?

With an alignment service, adjustments are made 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 your suspension is aligned to Dodge’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. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2003 Dodge Dakota, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Dodge’s recommended measurements. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get Dodge Dakota Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Dodge Dakota alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your 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 2003 Dodge Dakota: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your 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.
