1988 Honda Civic Wheel Alignment

How Does Honda Civic Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Honda Civic’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. When your car has an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Honda. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your suspension is aligned to Honda’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. As a result, you get several benefits: your ride is smoother, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1988 Honda Civic 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 Honda’s recommended measurements. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Honda Civic

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Honda Civic alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. 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 1988 Honda Civic: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Civic if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Honda Civic Cost?

Honda Civic wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1988 Honda Civic wheel alignment estimate.
