Wheel Alignment Service for 1997 Jeep Cherokee

How Does Jeep Cherokee Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Cherokee's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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 the system is aligned to Jeep specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1997 Jeep Cherokee, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. 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.

When to Get Jeep Cherokee Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Jeep Cherokee alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1997 Jeep Cherokee: pulling to the left or right, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Cherokee dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
