1988 Jeep Cherokee Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Jeep Cherokee Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Cherokee's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Jeep intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Jeep’s optimal measurements, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 1988 Jeep Cherokee, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Jeep recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Jeep Cherokee

It's a good idea to have your Jeep Cherokee alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1988 Jeep Cherokee: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Cherokee if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Jeep Cherokee Cost?

On a budget? Jeep Cherokee wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1988 Jeep Cherokee wheel alignment estimate.
