1986 Honda Civic Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Honda Civic Alignment?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Honda Civic’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 Honda intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Honda specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 1986 Honda Civic in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Honda. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Honda Civic Wheel Alignment?

It’s wise to have your Honda Civic alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly every 6,000 miles. 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 Honda Civic: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Civic dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
